TTTC164 A Friend's Birthday

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Hope you're having a lovely day so far! We have a great Tic-Tac-Toe grid for our challenge today!  Check it out:

I chose the left column of Spots/Stripes, Patterned Paper and Flowers, but really, I've got just about everything but twine and an animal, LOL!  Since I had Coastal Cabana on my desk from another project, I went with it again, using some of the patterns from the DSPs and the pretty Shaded Summer stamp set:


I used several dies to create the layers, and fussy-cut the word "friend" from the new Happiness Abounds set, then added some sequins from my stash.  I got an ink smudge on the inside layer, so sprigs to the rescue!  I just stamped some right over top of the smude and they "disappeared"!  The sentiment is also from Happiness Abounds!

The sketch that I used is from Try Stampin' On many fun layers!

I hope you'll check out what the other designers did with our grid, and their creations will inspire you to play along with us too!  Check them out at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge blog! See you there!  And here are a couple more beautiful sympathy cards:

From my sweet friend Teri:

And this beauty is from Lisa:

LeAnne, you are soooo good at monochromatic cards. Whenever I try to make one, I ended up pitching it. Yours are always gorgeous!!

Really lovely, LeAnne! that scalloped die reminds me of an old favorite W&W - that I haven't used in ages!

What a beautiful card. I love the color you have chosen, and how all of the patterned papers you have included enhance the stamped image and die cut. Thank you for joining us for this challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and look forward to seeing you again soon!
