It's All About You

Let's play Tic-Tac-Toe using color tiles! Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #441 has a fun Tic Tac Toe color board ready for you to enjoy. The rules are simple: select three colors in a row, a column, or diagonally from the board shown below. Then you are free to add any additional colors as long as they are included on the board. To add to the fun you are free to use black, white, vanilla, Kraft, or metallic gold. I selected the third column using Nectarine, Candy Apple Red, and Lemonade then added Lagoon, plus black and white.

I used a design called the "Banner Fold" by Tina Zinck from a tutorial found HERE. I started out a little slow but everything quickly fell into place as I created the card. Unlike the tutorial, I matted the banners with bright cardstock for definition. I like the bold design and think it would work for a masculine card quite nicely. I would also consider using patterned paper. A panel of white cardstock was added to the back of the card for a personal message.

This biweekly challenge runs from Friday, April 23, closing on Thursday evening, May 6, 2021. To play along, visit our
