Beautiful Bouquet for TTTC017

Time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! This one was a bit of a stumper for me, but I ended up working it out!

I picked the center row: Layers/Circle/Sequins. I have a love/hate relationship with sequins. Anybody else with me there? They have a mind of their own and I usually get them stuck on everything but where I want them! Yet they add such a beautiful sparkle to the card that if I can conquer the battle, I really like the look!

I only used a few on this card. I guess they got the better of me! But there are enough to qualify for the challenge! :-)

I used the Beautiful Bouquet stamps and framelits bundle with Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, and Flirty Flamingo. Whenever I mix pinks and oranges, it takes me back to my freshman year in high school and my pink and orange flowered pantsuit....but I digress....

The layers are stacked with Very Vanilla (thick cardstock), Peekaboo Peach, and Early Espresso.

The circle is the largest of the Stitched Shapes Framelit circles. The sequins dot the centers of select flowers. And the bow is the 1/8" Sheer Ribbon in Calypso Coral.

A 5/8" strip of Painted Autumn DSP on the envelope ties it all together.

The sentiments from Beautiful Bouquet are so sweet! This makes a very tender, loving thank you card for a good friend.

As with every week, the variety of cards entered in the challenge is amazing. So many different takes on the same challenge board make it fun! See them HERE.

Enjoy the challenge, and have a great week!

  1. Karen...What a pretty, pretty card. I feel your pain with sequins! I'm never happy where I place them and then it's too late to pull them up! You've placed yours perfectly on this card. Thanks for playing along with the TTTC.
