DTC Birthday Bash - Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

Hey everyone!!

Scroll down to see my post for challenge #11 at Yumi and Fumi Handmade.


I'm poppin' in to share a card I made for the crafty challenge at Designed to Color.  They turned 1 and are having a huge birthday bash that started on Friday with this fun challenge, Tic-Tac-Toe:


So the rules are simple you have to pick 3 squares that either go across or backwards, up or down or diagonal.  You must pick three connecting squares to make tic-tac-toe or be adventurous and do a blackout card.  I wasn't feelin' adventurous so chose the left outside squares which consist of purple, ribbon and bling and came up with this card featuring Fumi with Gift from Yumi & Fumi Handmade:


The beautiful washi paper is from Hanko Designs and I paired them with a dark purple and a lighter purple colored cardstock from Recollections.  The sentiment stamp from Stamp Works says Congratulations in Kanji and I thought it was an appropriate one for the celebration.  I used a pretty lavendar ribbon made by Offray and the beautiful vintage acrylic flowers are from Martha Stewart.  They were originally white, but I used Copic BV11 to give them more of a light purple tone.  You can't see them but the petals sparkle and there is a nice shiney gem in the center.  Love these pretty flowers.

Hope you got a chance to play along because the prize is a pretty awesome one! 
From Yumi & Fumi Handmade:  a pick of any 4 Yumi and Fumi Handmade stamps and from Designed to Color a free digital copy of the Jan/Feb/March 2013 and your choice of a print copy from either June/July, August/September or November/Dec.  How can you not want to play?!!  To enter link up at the Designed to Color blog.  Good luck!!


Before I sign off wanted to wish you all a Happy Girl's Day!!  This gorgeous e-card was created by my partner in craft, Renate' and it features all the Kimono series Yumi and Fumi girls.  Isn't it KAWAII?!!

Leanne
