Yellow Bird's Special Day

Tic-tac-toe challenges can be fun and this one was a great way to use up some scraps. This is my second card for this challenge. Give our challenge a look and play along at the Crafter's Café #197 beginning June 1, 2018. You have until June 14, 2018 to submit your creation. The other card can be viewed HERE.

This TTT challenge has a twist... the center space is a MUST even if you don't select a row that includes it. If you view the TTT grid below, I selected a diagonal direction that includes the paper so I used: black, yellow, patterned paper for my card.

I used a digital image called "Flower Bird" from Bugaboo Stamps. You will find all kinds of fabulous images at the Bugaboo website at reasonable prices.

The image was downloaded, resized, printed and colored. Patterned paper was used for the background. I especially like the butterflies with the coordinating green paper for matting. The paper panels were adhered to a panel of black cardstock, which was adhered to the white card base. The bird image was die cut using a frame die, backed with black cardstock and adhered with foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was also die cut from black cardstock. The inside of the card was decorated with a strip of the butterfly paper and a strip of black cardstock.

Come on by The Crafter's Café and check on our challenges. There are prizes!

I am entering this card into the May monthly challenge at Three Amigos Challenge #14.
