Celebrate For the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello and welcome!  It's time for a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge and this week Jeanne has given us a great board to play with.

I'm also joining Just Us Girls, where Vicki has chosen "Flowers" as the prompt for Word Week, which works perfectly for my card.

Whimsical flowers, foiling and bright colors are what I chose to use for my card, going diagonal left to right up the Tic Tac Toe board - floral, blue and embossing.

I started with hot foiling the floral image on smooth white cardstock and the leaves on vellum.  The foiling came out pretty well on the vellum except for the bottom of the leaf stems, which I hid behind the flowers.  The flowers were colored with a variety of Copic markers and then both foiled images were die cut with matching dies.

For the background I used Ocean Waves from Altenew to lightly ink blend a panel of white, then trimmed it down to 3.75" x 5" before embossing it.  The panel was then adhered to the white card base, then the flowers and leaves added atop that.  The sentiment was created from a previous foiling and die cutting session, so all I had to do was adhere it to finish things off.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, I really appreciate it.  Be sure to head over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and check out the fabulous cards by the other DT members and hopefully join in the fun this week!

Take care!
