A COUPLE OF CHALLENGES

Found a few challenges to enter that were intriguing - so with my usual flowers here are my cards.




For Retro Rubber's tic tac toe I chose blue, birthday and textured embossing  I used my old PTI Rosie Posie stamp (2012).  For the background I used Altenew's Fine Frames die and dry embossed with it - difficult to see in the large photo - maybe a bit better in the closeup.  




The code word at Addicted to CAS is "grid" and used Altenew's gradient stripe die for my background and their Perfectly Perfect stamps for my flowers.  I am also entering my first card there as it has a grid background.

 
Thanks for stopping by - always love to read your kind comments.

  2. Such a pretty line to play in the tic-tac-toe! And such pretty blooms. The texturing is subtle and perfect, just like those lovely blue sequins. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge this week,

  3. Wow--stuck inside due to winter weather sure is a good thing for you! Just love these new floral cards with one of my favorites, Rosie Posie (perfectly lined up & I'm going to try your method), but oh wow--the second one really grabbed my attention with the gorgeous gold & white!
