Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge 1

Procrastinator that I am (or is it more that I have a day job and a family? Yeah . . .), it wasn't until last night that I squeezed in making this card for the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge 1, which ends tonight. Still, I made it in time, so . . . holla!

I chose to do the gold + sparkles + acetate across the top. I layered a piece of screen printed acetate (from Hambly Screen Prints, which I most definitely hoarded) over gold foil cardstock. The gold foil, by the way - hard to photograph. I also added sequins for the sparkle requirement.

I'm planning to use this as a wedding card for friends getting married next month.

  1. Shirley, I'm thrilled that you joined us at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!! This card is fabulous!!! I can certainly see why you hoarded this paper...I would have, too. :) It's amazing. And I just love how you used a variety of colors and shapes of sequins. So fun! (PS Your babies are adorable!)

    1. Thanks, I'm glad I was able to get a card in!
