Watercooler Wednesday WWC 83 - Penny's Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

What an honor for my card to be picked as Honorable Mention!   I was up against some stiff competition.  I am PROUD to display the badge on my blog.   Thank you again Design Team!

This challenge gives you so many ideas to create a card.   It is not easy to sit down and create something while your mind is going a mile a minute.   Finally, what you have to do is get serious and pick a row.  So, what I picked was the Fun Fold, Birthday Theme, and Die Cut row.  I used the "Sprinkles of Life" stamp set and created a scene using the Double Z-Fold technique.   The Perfectly Artistic dsp looks great for the inside scene with the apple tree.   It looked a little bare, so I added a Birthday Sentiment from a  SU card kit.  I even used green in my card base.  The ribbon is striped and matches the Wildflower Fields dsp so closely.  My camera does not do the ribbon justice.

  1. Hi Heather, what a great diagonal line you chose for your Tic-Tac-Toe creation. I love the double Z fold card and the pretty DSP you've chosen as your background. What a clever idea to use the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and matching punch! The card is so pretty closed up and tied with that lovely bow and then "bang" you open it up and the theme continues. Great idea having one of those Swirly Bird Scribbles as your sun and then adding a few apples to your tree. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Thanks for playing the Tic Tac Toe challenge this week and managing to create such a great card. Thanks for reminding me about the Sprinkles of Life and the Tree Builder punch they're such great elements to add to your Z-fold card. You've created a cute little scene with your apple tree and I love the ribbon closure.

  3. Wonderful card, Heather. Thanks for joining us this week at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges.

  4. Another great card! Love the gate fold too! Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday this week.

  5. Terrific fancy fold (and you're such a tease at showing the inside!) The ribbon you used is just gorgeous; a nice light touch the match the light DSP colouring. So glad you joined our Watercooler Wednesday challenge again this week, Heather. ~Deborah
