Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #9

Hello everyone!! Happy May day!! I cannot BELIEVE it is May already.

I am so ready for the nice weather and the chance to get out into the garden and plant some flowers, as well as my veggies. Here in the northeast this can get tricky as we often get a late frost. I am itching to plant my flowers because I want to give my front yard a little color. It really needs it.

Today I am posting a card I created for Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #9.

I used the first row down-flowers, birthday and masking technique. I have quite a few birthdays this month and this badge gave me the excuse to create one.

I started off by masking CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Pretty Posies" set in Amethyst, Lilac and Green dye ink. Originally I was going to mask whole card front but as my usual messy self, I left a HUGE green thumb print in the middle of the card and had to improvise. Instead of chucking out the whole thing, I decided to use what I could.

I cut a piece of the masked flower panel off and adhered it with foam adhesive over a green card base and a white doily.

I embossed a sentiment  in green over a piece of dark purple card stock and adhered that over the edge of the stamped panel. The last step was to adhere some clear sequins randomly around the front.

For messing something up, this came together quite nicely!! I actually have enough of the botched panel left to make at least one more card for my stash!!

Please join us over at Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #9 and enter your creation inspired by the Challenge #9 badge. I cannot wait to see what you create!!
