Our Creative Corner Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Over at Our Creative Corner they are having a fun papercrafting tic tac toe challenge!  And, wow, talk about something right in my wheel house .... pink, flowers, and brads.  Ok, maybe not so much with the brads, but definitely pink flowers are right up my alley!  Woo hoo!

I had this image already colored from last week when I was stuck at the car dealership waiting on my car to be serviced.  I immediately thought to use it for this challenge.  You have to really like pink to use a lot of Melon Mambo, and I definitely love that color!  The DSP panel is Pink Pirouette and is really faint in these pictures.  Looks much better in "real life."

I glammed up the focal image by coating it with VersaMark and embossing with Iridescent Ice EP.

I kind of got carried away with the dimensionals!  I used the old style, thicker ones under the rectangle panel.  Boy!  Talk about some 3D lift!

My only "problem" with this card is that it appears my oval punch has a rough edge and it doesn't look as clean as I would like.  Guess I'll have to punch some foil with it and see if I can sharpen the edge up.

Be sure to pop over and look at all the other fantastic cards for this challenge.  You'll be inspired!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!

  3. Hello Sheri.
    First let me thank you for mentioning our Challenge in your write up, it was very pleasing, secondly your card is
    'pink-a-luscious.' Melon Mambo would not suit everyone, but I like anything hot!
    Your image with the iridescence is great and different, and I like the way you have added the White Bow too.
    Thank you so very much for joining us this week at OCC, we are so pleased to see your work.

  4. Beautiful card, Sheri. Love the embossing over the image. Great LO. Love the raised demensionals.

  5. Just gorgeous, Sheri! Love the clean design, the embossed frame and the pretty shading. This is perfectly pretty-in-pink! So glad you joined us this week at Our Creative Corner! Hugs! :)
