There aren't many tic-tac-toe color challenges for paper crafters but one is available at Color My Heart Color Dare #427, a biweekly event beginning Friday, January 15, and ending on Thursday evening, January 28, 2021. Select a direction of colors and create a project for our challenge. Once you have selected three-in-a-row colors you may add additional colors provided they are on the tic-tac-toe board. Also permitted are black, white, neutrals, and metallic gold. Colors that are not designated on the board below may not be used for this challenge. If you do not have the exact color, you may use one that is a very close match. I selected Peach, Blue Belle, and Sage then added Canary and Paprika plus a "freebie" of white.

The card base was die-cut from blue cardstock. A patterned paper was also die-cut to fit on the front of the card base. On white cardstock, I stamped three flowers in two colors, fussy cutting them and then adding a few yellow dots to the flower centers with yellow cardstock. The flowers were adhered using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was stamped and matted then added using foam tape. A few pearls were added as well. The inside of the card was decorated with a white scalloped rectangle and a pink patterned paper. A large block-lettered "THANKS" was die-cut from pink patterned paper and adhered along with another stamped flower.
