Paper Players 238

I liked the idea of this tic-tac-toe challenge at The Paper Players and it certainly forced me out of my comfort zone.

I played the right hand column: embossing/blue/polka dots.

The leaves were embossed with white embossing powder before the panel was sponged in Marina Mist. The polka dots were dry embossed. The card base, ribbon, sentiment and butterfly top and bottom are Night of Navy. The sponging and back panel are Marina Mist and the candy dots, Soft Sky.

It actually took me a while to make this card because I kept dithering: changing one ribbon for another, changing the colour and style of the butterfly, would the butterfly have a bow/button/brad? So many choices!

Thanks Paper Players, for such a challenging challenge!
