I've wanted to play along since the first challenge but it just didn't work out. This week's challenge is a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and I selected the vertical line of ribbon or twine, thanks and blue. I decided to include twine in my project as I have been on a bit of a twine kick lately. I wanted to feature the twine in an interesting way as it was the "tic" in my project. I remembered a cute technique I came across a while back to secure a 4 hole button with twine. I selected a large brushed copper button and thought that Island Indigo was a bold enough color to balance and coordinate with the button and it is the blue my project. I wanted to go with a patterned paper so I took a small diversion into the "free" space. Again, it had to be bold enough to support the button so I went with a strong diagonal pattern. With all of these strong elements my "thanks" had to make a statement, so I went with a bold thanks layered on some Island Indigo and Early Espresso die cut frames.
Well here it is, my big bold card! It's a bit of a diversion from all of the CAS cards I've been having fun with lately.
