Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #70 - Tic Tac Toe

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I hope you are having a fabulous week!  I'm counting down to my vacation that is just 2 weeks away and getting more and more excited every day!  Today over at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! 

I totally had another card in mind but once I started working on my planned card I decided it against it.  Instead this is what I came up with!  This fit in right across the bottom row for Orange, Ribbon/Twine and Punch/Die Cut!

 I started looking around my craft area and found some left over watercolor paper that already had a three color wash on it and had Gina Marie Oak Leaves die cut out of it.  I decided to cut the oak leaves out of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and inlay them into the negative space.   I cut the watercolor paper panel 3 3/4" x 5" and stamped the sentiment from the retired Lighthearted Leaves set in the lower left in Chocolate Chip Ink. The Pumpkin Pie Die Cut Oak Leaves were glued into the negative space with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  I ran Tangerine Tango baker's twine along the left side three times and tied it in a bow toward the bottom.  I adhered this panel onto Old Olive A2 Card Base.  I was super happy with how it turned out!  I'm usually not a clean & simple girl but this is pretty close!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
