Fussy and Fancy Challenge #133 Tic Tac Toe

I just love the idea of this challenge which is being hosted by the lovely, talented Beth. She has chosen Tic Tac Toe as her challenge it's easier to explain by using the little sketch she has given us:

You can choose to include any line across/ down/ diagonal or go all out for a Full House.

I was inspired by a sheet of Graphic45 paper from the Secret Garden Collection which I used as my backing paper .... it has flowers, birds and birdcages on it, I knew I had a lovely Birdcage charm I had bought from Live and Love online shop ... who just happen to be our sponsors this time. I made my easel card with a scalloped die.

Here are the nine items I have included:

There is my treasured birdcage charm, I diecut the butterflies and the poem, I used lace and ribbon, framed my poem with some pearls. The poem was wet embossed with gold embossing powder, and although it doesn't show up very well the butterflies are sparkley . I dry embossed the base of my easel and just to be sure I added a 'With Love' sentiment in case my poem didn't count
here is a photo to prove my butterflies were sparkled
dry embossed base and gold embossed sentiment

So there you go... as simple as that ... I had so much fun ... I hope you will have a go too, entering is easy more details here we would love to see what you make for this lovely challenge.

That's all for this time crafty hugs xxx Annie
