Hello and welcome...

Marlene is hosting the new challenge starting today at Crafty Cardmakers and this is my contribution to the Design Team.

The theme is, TIC, TAC, TOE
and if you pop over to the blog , or click on the highlighted link below, you'll see the grid guidelines to follow as well as my 'teamies' fabulous designs.

# 192 Tic, Tac, Toe

I chose the vertical grid on the right hand side, that is; embossing, buttons, die cuts.

I started with a 7" square ivory card and, with my chosen paper, a pretty green paper, I added a thin ivory ribbon, a little below centre.

I have had these gorgeous tiny brad buttons for years and never used them until making this card!  I attached 5 of them across the ribbon, centring them in the middle of each flower printed on the paper.

The flowers are die cuts and I arranged them in a slight arch to the top and bottom of the paper, and adhered another 3 roses, nearly in a vertical position,  to the off set middle of the design. 

I stamped the sentiment onto ivory card, covered it with some double sided adhesive sheet then die cut it and embossed it.  I removed the backing and sprinkled glitter jewels over it and 'tucked' it under the ribbon.

To complete I randomly glued a few silver stars over the area.
