Challenge #7 Spyder's Quirky Sketch and/Or Bingo!

Happy Easter Sunday everyone! Welcome back to Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog! Please scroll down to the post below to see if you were a winner of our last challenge, which I added a few hours ago!  It's Spyder, (Lyn) here, and it's my turn to set the theme to this next Quirky Challenge and I'm going to confuse you all completely, by having a Sketch, which you don't have to use but also giving you a choice of a Quirky Bingo, which you do have to use and the more things the better! Okay...you're confused! Here's the Sketch...

 Use this sketch anyway you like to create any thing you want but, we won't mind if you don't use it, or change it.. because we're Quirky that way, but!!! Here's the Quirky Bingo and we want you to use as many things on it as you can!!
Of course, if you're feeling really Quirky, you can use both the Sketch and the things on the Bingo card too!!
Tell us what you've done in your post or where you add your challenge link back here on your blog, or in a comment here. You could mix and match, the tin foil could be die-cut and embossed, the charm could be metal. Can't wait to see what you do!!

Here's some fantastic inspiration from our Designers using Digital Images from Robyn's Fetish!!

I used the blissful angel from our sponsor  Robyn's Fetish as the focal point for a page for my journal. I added the Bible Quote beneath using Microsoft word, and then die cut the circle, dry embossing the edge. I used heat embossing on the top and bottom righthand corners, then stitched using gold twine around the edge.The background papers were from Tim Holtz and I used tearing on the top sheet.  I finished the page off with a metal charm, copper tin foil, gold pen work, and coloured the wings with sakura stardust.  In fact, I think I managed to follow the sketch and include everything Lyn asked for except flowersoft!
Well done Caro, it looks fantastic! I've used Wake Up Birdie from Robyn's Fetish and used the sketch, torn and embossed the papers, used a metal charm, which I found in my garden when digging! Embossed some tin, which used to be a tube of glue, with a butterfly embossing folder and then cut out the butterfly, used a scalloped die-cut and added ribbon and a bow. I've also 3D-ed the digi.

Cazzy  will be here later too.... think maybe she's had too made Easter Eggs! Ha ha very funny Lyn (I thought the post wouldn't go out on time and I would get away with it)!

Sorry I am a bit late, I have had a hectic few days! I am ready now. My first card uses Belinda Bunny from Robyn's Fetish, and I stuck to Spyder's sketch, and included baker's twine, die cutting, heat embossing and real stitching.

This is Mrs Turner and Hooch from Robyn's Fetish, I printed them out large so couldn't really use the sketch. I have used an embossing folder to emboss the background, ribbon, die cutting and metal staples. 

I made this project using the digi English tea cup from Robyn's Fetish. I traced and cut it in black colored adhesive paper. Then I put on colored cardboard, roses, leaves and plate. It is a gift box. I also decorate it with distress inks, flowers, feathers, brads, charm, ribbon and flourish in tin metal glitter.

Daire - will be along later or maybe not - someone tipped a cup of coffee into her printer so she can't print off the images, and is on the warpath right now! She will join us for the reminder post - even if she hasn't managed to print off any images to use!
