The Friday Mashup #53 - Tic Tac Toe

I've always wanted to play along in The Friday Mashup & it seems, finally, I've gotten around to it.  :)

The Mashup Team have got a cool challenge - Use a row from their tic tac toe grid, or use a special fold, or mash it up & use both.  I've gone for the total mashup, using Pearls, Lace & Flowers from the grid, as well as using a joy fold!  Here's the result:-

(You can click on any of the pictures if you want a larger view.)

I've had fun with some new SU goodies, using the framelit dies on both the main image panel & the black flap on the left hand side of the card.  The image has been stamped & then coloured using blender pens & inkpads.  Small pearls have been added to the rose centres.

Here is the card partly open:-

& fully open:-

I've added a vanilla panel to the inside of the black flap, to cover up the brad pins from the flower.  Here's a close up of the bloom (I even managed to capture a bit of sparkle from the shimmer mist):-

If you would like instructions for these blooms, you can find them here, at Joanne Leddy's blog.  :)

There's still a little bit of time left if you want to play along in the challenge - here are the tic tac toe details & the link:-

This is indeed stunning, my friend. Gorgeous flower (loving that colour), and the folds on your card are very clever. Beautifully finished, as always.

I totally love that you did the Joy fold with the framelits labels. Awesome!

Great idea to use the framelits for the joy fold, I am going to have to remember that!

This is such a pretty card...I love the colors and your coloring!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!
