Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #10

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!!

Today I am showing you the card I created for Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #10.

Can you believe it is Challenge #10 already? I have had so much fun over these months playing along!

For this challenge, I chose the diagonal from the top left to the bottom right-chevron, ombre and vellum.

I started my card by using a Heidi Swapp's Chevron Stencil and using Distress Ink in Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord and blended it to create an Ombre effect. I then mounted the panel onto a purple card base.

Next I die cut a cross out of white card stock using the Paper Smooches "Crosses" die and adhered it to the front of the card.

I stamped, embossed and die cut flowers from Simon Says Stamps "Artful Flowers" stamp set and matching "Designer Flowers" die onto Vellum. I then used Distress Markers in Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Squeezed Lemonade to color the flowers in from the back. I then adhered them to the card overlapping the cross.

I stamped the sentiment in Lavender dye ink onto a white card stock strip and adhered it to the card  front with foam adhesive. I used a clear Wink of Stella pen to add a bit of sparkle to the flowers. My last step was to adhere some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins around the cluster of embellishments.

I think this card came out so beautiful and it was so much fun to create!! I thank you for stopping by and please make sure to hop over to Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Blog to join in the fun!!

Have a  wonderful day!!
