Special Day

My granddaughter has a birthday in a few weeks and I will be sending her this cheerful card. This is also my Design Team card for Try Stampin' on Tuesday Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #3. I hope you'll visit our blog and play along in one of our challenges. We have sketch, technique, color and tic-tac-toe challenges, along with an occasional blog hop. This challenge begins on May 15 and runs for two weeks.

Using the tic-tac-toe grid, I selected the bottom horizontal row: green, outdoors, oval. There is green in the floral paper, the scene is set outdoors and the balloon is oval.

Onto a white card base, two different pink textured cardstock panels were adhered. Onto that is a panel embossed with clouds. The butterfly, scallop trim, the fence and the hillside were die cut. The image was stamped, colored and fussy cut. The sentiment was stamped. All of the elements were assembled, many with foam tape for dimension. The inside has not yet been decorated or stamped.

Join the challenge fun and play along at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!
