Color and Sketch Challenge Combine to Make a Tic Tac Toe

As I started to think about challenges this week, I was thrilled to discover that during the process of creating a card that combined the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 301 and the colors from Color Inkspiration 11, I had inadvertently created a Tic Tac Toe for TTTC011.   I created the angle cut on the layers on the card front with my Stampin' Trimmer.  As we recreated this card in class, others decided using the scissors to cut the angles worked better for them.  So, I guess you can use whichever you prefer.  That's one of my favorite things about CASEing a card--there are many different ways to get the same result.  There is no limit to creativity.

 I got to use my favorite Stampin' Up! color during this challenge--Elegant Eggplant.  I used it for the card base and also for the ink color used to stamp some of the flowers on the front and inside of the card as well as the sentiment.  Pool Party was used for the cardstock layer on the front of the card.  Bermuda Bay ink was also used to stamp flowers on the card front and inside of the card.
Finally, Lemon Lime Twist was used for the ribbon along the card crease and the ink was also applied to the leaves on both the front and inside of the card with a blender pen.

All of this created the Tic Tac Toe in the middle row across for Challenge 11--flower, thank you, angled.

Make sure you head over to these challenges to see the design inspiration and other creative entries.
