With Gratitude for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello friends!  It's time for a new Tic Tac Toe challenge and this week Silke has given us lots of options for making fun fall cards.

I'm also joining the Fall Colors Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, along with the fall themed/October challenges at Double D Challenges and the Four Seasons Challenge.

For my card I went down the middle column of the Tic Tac Toe board - slim card, grateful and mixed medium.  My mixed mediums are Copics and dye inks.  I was going to make a fold card but time got away from me and I chose the easier route. ;-)

I used one of my favorite Birdie Brown images for fall to make this card.  I stamped all the images in brown, Copic safe ink, colored them then die cut them with the matching dies.  The sentiment was stamped in brown pigment ink, die cut with a label die. 

For the slim layers I used dies from Pinkfresh Studio's Mini Slimline Essential dies, cutting both from Neenah Solar White.  I used various distress inks to create the background, along with a cloud stencil.  When complete the layers were adhered to a 3"x 6" base.  I adhered the girl on the pumpkin and 2nd largest pumpkin directly to the panel then used thin foam squares to mount the squirrel and the smallest pumpkin.  The sentiment strip was trimmed down to fit the card front, then also added with thin foam squares.  Lastly, I used a white gel pen to add polka dots and the little girl's sweater.

Thanks so much for visiting, I appreciate it.  Be sure to use the link above to check out the fabulous cards by the rest of the design team and hopefully join us this week!

Take care!
