I'm back for my third challenge as Surprise Party Guest at Seize the Birthday!
As usual you can make any kind of birthday card and join the Anything Goes portion of the challenge or you can play along with our Topping which this week is a Tic Tac Toe challenge.
I was a little panicked when I saw a Tic Tac Toe challenge because for some reason I really struggle with them. However I put on my big girl pants and sat down to figure it out. I ended up going with a diagonal line - One image/Flowers/Large Sentiment - and it was so much easier than I expected! I dug out my trusty PTI In Bloom flower and stamped it onto coloured cardstock. I used my Copics to do a little bit of outlining and highlighting around the edges of the flower and leaves and then paired it with a gorgeous scripty Simon Says Stamp birthday sentiment die. I dithered forever about what colour Nuvo drops to use - purple? green? purple? green? - and finally went for green just so I wouldn't end up sitting there forever!
I hope you'll join in the fun! You have until 9am (PST) on Tuesday, 11 August to play along.
