Crafty Tic-Tac-Toe

It's the last day of Challenge *REVEALS* for Paper Anthology's Creation Staycation, but of course the event continues until Tuesday night and there will still be trivia questions, daily prizes, Zoom chats and more! The last of my challenges as a hostess is a crafty version of Tic Tac Toe. First, here's my card:

Now here's the board, but of course if you're playing, you need to link up in the comments of the correct post on the Paper Anthology FaceBook Page! I'm putting the board here, though, because it makes it easier to explain what I did. I used the diagonal that starts in the top left corner, which gave me FLOWERS + Stash More Than a Year Old + BLING.

Pretty much EVERYTHING on this baby is more than a year old, so there's that out of the way. (The Indian-inspired background paper is from a store that I think closed in... 2012??) My flowers are for once NOT in your face, they are kind of cameo appearances, to the little wooden elephant with the henna design. The bling is a Prima "Say It With Crystals" and I cut it apart a bit and pieced it back together to fit the space better. There's also a scallopy bling border which was in the box with all my miscellaneous bling, which means it's VERY old and I have no idea whence it came. But for being a weird cobbled together card, I really love how it came out!

That's the great thing about challenges, they push us out of our comfort zones!

  1. I believe you've already guessed how much I adore this card ... maybe it will be tucked away for my birthday later this year ... orange is my happy color and the elephant is terrific.


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
