I Love Promarkers DT Card - Bingo

We're at the half way point of our challenge at I Love Promarkers, so it's time for my DT project.  Our theme this fortnight is a bingo board, all you need to do is make a line on it, or, like me, go for a full house!  We're sponsored this time by Stitchy Bear, who very kindly gave the DT a digi of our choice, I chose this beautiful Christmas image, called RSP Holiday Centrepiece, which I coloured, of course, with my Promarkers and fussy cut before adding to my card.

 I kept the colours very pale so that the poinsettias would really pop, I cheated a bit to get my bingo full house, they are the "flower" element from the board.  The only coloured element, other than the image, is some light beige patterned paper from my Trimcraft, Gilded Winter paper pack.  I was going to make the whole card white on white, but the lovely Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page holly border hardly showed at all against white, and I really like the vintage feel the beige gives, it also picks out the shading on the candle rather well.
The filigree centre panel was created with a combination of three dies from my Spellbinders Adorning Square dies, it's fixed to the holly mat with gem brads.
I added some white crochet lace between the two white mats, and threaded some satin ribbon through a slit in the die cut one, topping the ribbon with a bow made from layered organza and satin ribbons.
To finish, I added a sentiment from Craftwork Cards and some white pearls in the corner.
