PP493 Tic Tac Toe Friend to Friend

Hello peeps!  Happy Sunday!  Jaydee is our Paper Players hostess this week with a tic-tac-toe grid!  Here we go:



I chose the middle column of girly, die cut and friendship, but I also got flowers, silver and embossing in there too!!  I used the Mix It Up challenge from Sugar Pea Designs for my colors:


And here we go:


I'm still on the fence about this card...or maybe I should I should say I'm still straddling the bike!  I wanted to use the sketch, but my Technique Tuesday bike was too big, so I had to modify it a bit!  I stamped the bike in Pacific Point ink using my Stamparatus, then went back and used a Basic Black marker to color the tires, seat and handlebars.  I stamped the basket in Crumb Cake and added some wee little flowers cut from a sheet of Best Dressed DSP.  I added some silver embossing on the sentiment, some silver brads, and mounted it on a Blueberry Bushel scalloped mat:



The background is Granny Apple Green gingham and cardstock, stamped with a teeny little flower from a past Paper Pumpkin kit,  with a little Smoky Slate diecut trim and a little slip of silvery ribbon to add to the silver embossing!  And since I had a sliver of the gingham left over, I added it to the back of my sentiment, stamped in Smoky Slate, for the inside:


This is already out in the mail to a special friend!  I hope our Tic Tac Toe grid will inspire you to create something fun!  Be sure to share it over at the Paper Players and make sure you stop by to see what the design team has created as well!

This is such a great card with the gingham and silver touches! The blue color is a pleasing compliment to the green and I like how you used all those elements from the ttt grid! It's going to be a perfect day for a bike ride too, enjoy this beautiful day!
