Inkspirations Challenge #56 - Tic Tac Toe!!!

Hi, ready for this week's challenge? By the look of things love is in the air & these great colours are perfect for a Valentine greeting:-

After last week's grid sketch, I have been itching to create a "tic tac toe" card. I was super excited to discover that the SU itty bitty punches provided me with perfect "crosses" &, with the addition of a smaller circle punch, a bunch of "noughts" as well. Here is my card:-

& look, no crazy cutting this week! LOL

I glazed the playing pieces with SU Crystal Effects & added some Cherry Cobbler cardstock to the back of one of the cute little heart buttons & tied it with fine satin ribbon. I wanted the grid to have a hand drawn look, so I stamped it using the stem from the "dandelion" of SU's retired Good Friend set.  The sentiment has been added to a tag from the SU Medium Jewellery Tag Punch. The background stamp is a distressed grid pattern & I have stamped it repeatedly in Cherry Cobbler to achieve a natural fabric looking texture. Here's a close up of the details:-
