The Paper Players #93 - Anything Goes - Tic Tac Toe - Mini Flower Pot & Centre Step Card

This is my entry for this week's challenge at the Paper Players:- 

Lesley has a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge:-

You can probably guess from the first image that I chose the left hand column!

I have made several of these mini flower pots & couldn't resist making a blue version, attached to a centre step card.  You may not have picked it, but the DSP on the side panels is from the Nautical Expedition pack.  The centre panel is from the Cheerful Treat Hostess DSP.  Here are a couple of close-ups:-

I didn't have any matching brads, so I used plain white ones, covered them in Versamark ink & then embossed them with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  I re-inked them & embossed them a second time, to get a nice sparkly finish.  The butterfly had a dose of the same treatment!

The flower pot has a magnet on the back (as does the inside of the card), so the recipient can take the flower pot off the card to display it.  Here's what it looks like off the card:-

The fun part about the flower pot is that you can slide the flower section out of the pot & you have a little secret section to write on:-

ETA:  If you would like your own copy of the tute on how to make the flowerpot & centre step card, please go to this post for the links.  :)

There is still heaps of time to play along in the challenge (here), as well as check out the fabulous DT inspiration pieces & all the other entries.  :)

ETA:  A big thank you to Lesley at the Paper Players for making my card the Headliner for this week!  :)
