Today is the Perfect Day to be Happy! (ttt005)

Today is another exciting Tic Tac Toe Challenge! These challenge boards are so much fun. I love the fact that we get to choose the elements we want to use! For my card I’ve chosen the top row across: circle – summer – ribbon.

For the circle element I actually used two circles. The lower circle is punched out with the Sunburst Punch, and the inside circle was die-cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Pretty Pointer:  Framing your sentiment always makes a statement. Whether your sentiment is on a square shape, a circle, or an oval, add a framing layer either in front or behind your sentiment piece. It will add a finished look to your project.

For the summer element I used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This particular sheet of dsp has a light summery look which is perfect!

Ribbon, beautiful ribbon! That’s one reason I chose the top row across the tic tac toe board…I really love ribbon! In yesterday’s post I told you that the 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding is my absolute favorite ribbon in the new Annual Catalog 🙂  So when I have the opportunity to choose ribbon, I HAVE TO use my favorite, right???

So what about you? Will you come over and join us? The Tic Tac Toe Challenge is fun and easy and we would love for you to enter! I’ll look for you over there at!
