The Paper Players tic tac toe challenge



Hi everyone!

Today Claire has a tic-tac-toe challenge for us at The Paper Players!!!




I chose the middle....die cut, sequins, and any shade of blue, and made two cards for my kids. I am ALWAYS missing them, and wishing we could see each other more often. SO... when I saw this set from My Favorite Things, "Sending and Wishing," it went on my wish list right away!




For this card, I used some enamel dots in place of the sequins, and a darker color blue. This card I plan to send to my son, and the lighter blue to my daughter. I used 3 layers for the "wishing," for some added dimension.

Head on over to The Paper Players and play along!
