I love when I can incorporate those crafting “leftovers” that you keep because you swear “I’ll use it for something!”  In the case of this card, I’m so glad I did save those bits and pieces.

The background was a piece of 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ watercolor paper I had been testing faux watercolor backgrounds on.  The polka dots in the challenge board brought me back to that scrap which, on it’s own I didn’t like.  However, stamping some random dots with the Playful Backgrounds set totally changed the scrap into an interesting focal piece!

I used a 3″ x 3″ piece of Old Olive cardstock as my bottom layer and stamped a sentiment from an old Paper Pumpkin kit also in Old Olive.  The sprig is a die from the Petals & More thinlits set.

For this card I drew inspiration from the left column down.  Which three in a row will you choose for your project?  Grab your creative cap, whatever supplies you have on hand and come play with me at TTTC!



This week’s featured designer is Claire Broadwater.  Our board has plenty of inspiration for Spring or Saint Patrick’s Day.  (or even something completely different – like my card)

We love seeing what you creat and I hope you will join us for another great week at www.tictactoechallenge.com
