Black History Month BINGO Challenge

I hosted a Black History Month Bingo challenge over at Scraps of Color.  The goal is to BINGO using every item on the Bingo card making a layout.  I created an 8x8 layout (with paper and lace I've hoarded way too long) of my mother with one Bingo (C – Down) AND decided to do a Pocket Letter for the heART of it using every item on the Bingo card!  

8x8 layout of my mother when she was younger.
C (Down)

Chipboard piece (flower)
Pearls (under the lace)
Metal (key)
3D embellishment (chipboard button and flower)
Lace (above the pearls)
