Guest Designer at Craft Hoarders

Hello Friends!!
Today I am a Guest Designer  at Gloria's Craft Hoarders Challenge Blog.  

Challenge #19 For all that You do, Thank You!
Create a "thank you" gift for this challenge. It can be a Thanksgiving hostess gift or a simple thank you card. It can be a "thanks for helping me out of a jam" present, or a "thanks for being you" scrapbook layout. As long as your project says, "THANKS," enter the challenge! We want to see you de-hoard some of your stash and say thanks to someone! (Your project does not have to be Thanksgiving-themed!)
One Talented Participant that Links up their "Thanks" project to the

I am so excited to be sponsoring Gloria's New Challenge blog and being a Guest Designer!  Please make sure you visit Gloria's blog so that you can see what the other Guest Designers have created for the challenge.

Here is a short tutorial of how I put my pieces together.
First I cut out all of my pieces and inked the edges with Ranger's Frayed Burlap.  Punched holes in the tag bases.
 I layered all of my doilies onto the bases and then added the Tombow foam tabs to the backs of the bingo images.  It is smarter to add the bows at the top of the tags (brown gingham ones) prior to layering them to the base :0)
 I placed the bingo cards onto the traditional tag bases.  For the fancy tags I layered in a piece of orange gingham around the bottom of some of the bingo cards and I added the tangerine diamond ribbon across the top of the doilies on the fancy tags.
You will see I added a few of my ticket images and a bow made out of Old Willow organza.  Please refer to the photo for placement of the foam tabs.  Here are the tags with embellishments from RRR.
 After I added Art Glitter!
Here are a couple close ups of the banner pieces.

Here is the center piece which I did the other day.
