Love You Forever for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello friends and welcome back!  It's time for a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  I've created this fun board that I hope spark's your creativity!

For my card I went down the right hand column, although I think we could stretch the definition of CAS and go across the middle as well.

I just love this wreath!  It wonderful for a Valentine or anniversary, but I think you could use any sentiment with it to stretch the number of occasions for its use.  I colored it with Copic markers then it was cut with the coordinating die, which cuts both the center and the outside of the wreath.  I also stamped, colored and die cut the large flower on the bottom left as well as the heart above the sentiment.  A separate panel of white was lightly ink blended with Spun Sugar in the center where then sentiment was then stamped.  Next it was cut with a heart die and adhered to the back of the wreath. 

Next three more wreaths were die cut and adhered to back for greater stability.  The white card base was layered with a strip of designer paper in black with white little hearts, then the die debossed panel, trimmed down to 3.75" x 5", was added with foam tape.  The wreath was added to the front of the panel with thin foam squares, which were also used to add the extra flower and the heart.  The final step was to use a shimmer pen on all the flowers, the heart and the berries.

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!  I hope you're continuing to stay safe and healthy, and enjoy your upcoming weekend.
