Stamp Off Tic Tac Toe Butterflies

Hey friends!  It's time to have another Stamp Off challenge and play some games.  Specifically Tic Tac Toe.  The idea is simple;
draw a board, add some product suggestions, and make challenge
cards that are based on a line through 3 items.
 
 For this board, I included either masculine or feminine 
options.  It's a very straight forward board, that likely
didn't cause too much frustration for the ladies (I hope).  
I enjoy tic tac toe challenges, but don't feel that they have
to be crazy complicated.  Just fun!
 
 Stampin' Up! outdid itself this year in terms of Framelits
and Thinlits.  Having these tools for use with the Big Shot
makes card production much easier.  In this sample,  I followed
the tic tac toe board, drawing a vertical line down the left side,
including framelits, in-colors and White Perfect Accents (p 177).

As I said, this was a pretty quick card.  I stamped the Wild Wasabi
card base with the Hardwood stamp (p 125).  I stamped
"SENDING" with the Sunburst Sayings set (p 97), 
and added the butterflies in Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo.
The Peekaboo Peach "sunshine" strip also comes from
the Sunshine Wishes thinlits on page 194.
The 3/8" Ruched Ribbon on page 178 was added
to finish things off.

Now that you've seen my tic tac toe moves,
hop on over and check out Buffy and Susan's samples.

I love this card, Jackie. I love the darker background with the pop of bright colors. Oh, and I really like your new blog header! It looks great!

This card is so striking, Jackie - for the reasons Susan said. (I love those bright colors!) How funny is it that we all used the same row? And I meant to comment the other day that your new header is lovely!

Those little butterflies are so cute - it looks like they're flapping their wings! I love your colour combination; just like true nature, with the neutral green background, then pops of colour :)
