Vintage Bingo Card Ornament

I used a Jenni Bowlin bingo card as a base and added a Sizzix die-cut frame cut from paper-covered chipboard. On that I added a cropped vintage image of a lady with a sailor style dress and a flag, from VIC.

To decorate the card I gathered red, white & blue striped crepe paper and added a ruffle to the bottom of the card, and trimmed it with silver tinsel. I added die-cut stars covered in glass glitter and rhinestones. It hangs from my Patriotic 4th of July tree with a pipe cleaner hanger trimmed with a flag.

Thanks, Berta.

I sure like that idea of a pennant shaped flag. About the paper, that's how I've become a hoarder. I'm afraid to use things like paper because I might never find it again. I sometimes scan it, even though it doesn't fit on my scanner. It's probably illegal so don't tell anyone.
Anyway, I like the whole piece, crepe, tinsel stems, etc. Very creative.
If you have a picture with the whole flag showing I'd like to see it.

Berta how nice to see your entry here! All your details are wonderful, love the crepe paper layers at bottom fringe, the silver reminds me of sparklers! Great job friend!

Answer for Kathy

Yes Kathy, the flag is a pennant shape. I cut it from some old Rusty Pickle pattern paper, inked the edges and glued it to the chenille hanger. I wish I could find some more of that paper!

Love it!

Hi Berta, I love this one. I wish I could see the flag on the corner, is it pennant shaped? Did you make it yourself? I love the crepe ruffles and glittered stars. I like it all.
