The Paper Players tic tac toe challenge



Hey there!

Today Nance has a tic-tac-toe challenge at The Paper Players, my very favorites of all challenges!


I chose diagonal this time, buttons, embossing, and patterned paper. As I mentioned in previous posts, I am in need of quite a few fall cards for a charity event coming up, so I decided to make one for this challenge,too.

I used lilinker stitched rectangles to cut and emboss, and also my wood grain embossing folder for the back ground. The leaves I cut with IO dies with patterned paper. I added some twine and a button. The sentiment is stamped with baked brown sugar with SU's Tags for You set. I love how the baked brown sugar stamps on the off white textured card stock....gives a rustic look to it..perfect for fall!



Head on over to see the other cards....you won't be disappointed!

Love the plaid leaves - they rock! I love the texture and colors on your card. Really beautiful. Oh... loved your photos from Duluth, too. We were up there a couple of months ago, so it was wonderful to be reminded how beautiful it is!
