Thank goodness for some stamping time....today, I'm stopping by with a card for this weeks Tic Tac Toe Challenge - TTTC169...

I chose the bottom row across - TREE, WATER AND SUN.

Sadly, I needed a Sympathy card for a sweet friend of mine and I decided to pull out the beautiful  The Greetery - Reflection Set. Betsy has a great video to follow on the same page and I gave it a try. This beautiful stamp set also covered two of the three elements I needed for the challenge... my sky background was created with ink blending using various Ranger Oxide Inks.  At last I added the sentiment from the  PTI - With Sympathy Set.

TIC TAC TOE CHALLENGE - TTTC159 HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Hello and happy Thursday!

Can't believe it's almost the end of April...how can this be?!? 

Today, I have a card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - TTTC159....




Here is the challenge board....


I decided to use the middle row down - SPARKLE, FREE AND FUN FOLD.

I must admit, I always shy away from fold cards, because some how I'm really challenged with following written instructions...LOL!!! I'm definitely more of a visual learner. 

I came across THIS Instragram fold card/video and thought it would be fun to try. For my card base I chose a lighter SU - Barely Banana CS and added some PTI Striped DP. For the middle I added a heavier White CS from PTI. The gorgeous bloom is from the Pinkfresh Studio - Garden Roses Set. I matched it up with the coordinating dies and layering stencils. Next I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the SU - Large Oval Punch. At last I added the Silver Halfback Pearls below the sentiment and voila my card is done! 

Now it's your turn....don't forget to stop by the TTTC Challenge Blog to see all for the teams ideas.

Thank you for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day! ~SL~
