This week's Challenge at Loves Rubberstamps  is to use Tic-Tac-Toe to make a creation that makes either a line or diagonal  on your board - one catch is that you must have all 3 elements on a card. So here is my card which uses gold paper as my base and a 5"x 7" card size. I'm used buttons, Spellbinder die cuts and embossing for my Tic-Tac-Toe.

  I used the following  Anna Griffin papers; AG1670 (stripe), AG1667, AG1686 and AG1666 for the rest of my papers.  I used AG1667 for the first layer and then used AG1670 for the second layer. I ran the striped paper thru a Stampin'Up embossing folder called 'Lacy Brocade'. I then used a Stampin'Up folder called 'Square Lattice' and AG1666 paper for the third layer. I cut out the frame using gold paper and Spellbinders 'Label 10'and ran it thru another Stampin'Up embossing folder called 'Fancy Fan'. I then cut out a frame using Spellbinders 'Label 10' using the largest and second largest frame using AG1668 paper. I stamped the 'Elegant Flower' by La Blanche onto their specialty paper using Coffee Archival ink by Ranger. I colored the image using Tim Holtz distress markers. I then went over the flower and the butterfly using an embossing pen and applied UTEE and then heat set. I added 4 Real Red corduroy buttons along with some gold thread. I cut out some flourishes using gold paper and Spellbinders 'Twisted Metal Accents  & Tags.
