PP448 Birthday Tic Tac Toe

Happy Sunday, everyone!  It's time for another Paper Players challenge, and Joanne has a great tic-tac-toe challenge for us today!  They're always fun!  Here's the grid:

I chose the center column of patterned paper (current DSP from SU), yellow (So Saffron and Daffodil Delight) and birthday (Itty Bitty Greetings):

I began my stamping one of the florals from Bloom and Grow in Sahara Sand ink.  These large images can be intimidating, even to me!  But they color up very quickly, really!  I colored this one with a Crumb Cake center, Daffodil Delight light and dark petals, and Mint Macaron leaves.  Then I diecut it with the matching die, and instead of layering it on top of the gingham, I also cut the gingham with the die and "inlaid" the colored image inside.  Just a little thing, but I like the effect it gives:

I stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake and diecut it with the Nested Labels dies, adding a little burlap ribbon underneath, along with a few metallic pearls!  I love these colors together!  And since the Festive Friday challenge this week is featuring yellow, I am entering there as well!

No Cassidy pix today, she's on vacation with her daddy, but look what visited us in our back field on Friday morning: 

There were four at first, but one ran off....the others were quite content to stare at us, LOL!

Thanks for popping in today! Enjoy it and be blessed!

I LOVE all your visitors! How fun! Since we moved back to the city, I miss seeing all the deer friends when we lived at the lake!
All the yellow and white gingham is so pretty and your inlaid blooms are gorgeous! Such a creative idea! Love that ribbon to add a country feel to your card!
Happy Fourth of July to your family! XXX

LeAnne, love your visitors and yes, I wonder who was actually watching who?! I also love your card. I love the texture the hessian and it works so beautifully with the gingham - they really go together so well. You did a great job of coloring the flowers, too and I love that you die-cut them and inserted them into the gingham. Oh, I love the layout, too! A wonderful, warm and sunny card - sure to brighten anyone's day.
