Tic Tac Toe! Friendship card

Spring is inching happily towards us!  At Retro Rubber Challenge Blog we have a fun Tic Tac Toe and it happens to be my contributed challenge.  Often I have a hard time with Tic Tac Toe challenges, as I overthink the process.  But once I got going on this one I was able to check all the squares off, and complete a black out, well I guess that's a bingo term!

This is the challenge image to create your card or project. 
My card was created using the following:
  •  The die cut is Stitched Ovals from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  It is die cut from white cardstock and stamped with Hero Arts 2009 Friends are Flowers in Memento Luxe Pear Tart and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Fireworks! Bamboo leaves is gently tapped over the image to add some depth and painted into the leaves. Small die cuts from Sizzix Tim Hotlz Tattered Flowers are die cut from scraps of cardstock to put over the stamped flower.
  • The pink shimmer card stock is first die cut with the Stitched Ovals from Elizabeth Craft Designs then pressure embossed with Darice Petal Background embossing folder.  With a white core paper, the flowers are distressed with a sanding block as well as the edges.  K & Company adhesive gems are added to a few of the flower's centers.
  • The card base has Fireworks! Bamboo leaves gently tapped around the edges to pair with the focal image.
  • The layers are adhered together to the card base, taking care the the oval is placed the same direction as it was die cut.  Even with symmetrical dies they are not perfect!
  • Sheer purple ribbon is tied into a small bow and adhered to the card.

How fun is that?  Sometimes a Tic Tac Toe board can inspire the next little detail on your card!
