To a Stand-up Friend - Masculine Birthday

Another biweekly Tictactoe Color Challenge began today, Friday, May 22. Color My Heart Color Dare #395 runs through Thursday evening, June 4, 2020. The rules are simple - just pick a row from the Tictactoe board below and use those colors on a paper crafting project. Once you have decided on the three-in-a-row colors, you may add additional colors from the grid. Only colors that appear on the board are acceptable. Black, white, silver and gold may be used as neutrals. I selected the first column, Eggplant, Peacock and Sage then included Linen and Charcoal (light).

Onto the card base, I added a simple frame stamped with a design. The Meerkats were stamped and colored with Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped. Two strips were added across the card front and the focal image was added with foam tape. Enamel dots finished off the card front. The inside was lined with cardstock and decorated with a stamped Meerkat and a birthday sentiment.
