Simon Says: Tic Tac Toe

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Use Patterned Papers Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


The lovely Maura Hibbitts has made this fabulous grid for us to use! Choose a line and use the 3 items in that line, you can also choose a full house option if you're feeling adventurous!

I used the sequins/stencil/washi diagonal and made a new baby card.

I was going to try for the full house but chickened out *wink*. I used a Tim Holtz Baby Blueprints Stroller to make this card and made an envelope to go with it. 

I started by blending Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then stencilled Falling Hearts over the top. I splattered Lindy's Gang Hibiscus Rose and Creme Brûlée over the top, I also used the Hibiscus Rose for colouring the pram. 

I finished with a few Gold Sequins and String and a strip of washi tape to finish.

I finished the inside to make it a little bit extra special, it doesn't take long to decorate the inside and I think it makes all the difference ;-) 

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

That's such a sweet card - I love the ice-cream colour tones (strawberry and pistachio - yum!) and the brilliant shading on the pram to give it such dimension. Fabulous touches of gold too in the tinting and that gleaming bow. Thanks so much for welcoming me this month - it's been a joy to play alongside you and this amazing team.
