September Diva Dare ~ Day 11



Hi, It's Laurie here, with Day 11 of the Diva Dare Challenge "Tic, Tac, Toe". 

We are challenging you to create a card or project using inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board. For example: x’s and o’s, hugs and kisses, squares, circles, grids, you get the idea. 

I read the challenge and was instantly taken by the "grid" part.  I love a scored background so that is how I decided to incorporate the idea of a tic-tac-toe board...


I used my Scor-Pal and scored every inch on the diagonal to create this background.  I added in a sentiment form Let it Be.  I also stamped a heart from Stronger Love and then cut it out.  I actually attached it with the stamped side down.  This layout was completely inspired (and CASE'd) by THIS badge I found on Pinterest  I love the colors and the fun circle focal point.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Here's some info on how you can play along:



Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, September 25th.  Entries must be new (posted 9/6 or later), include at least one Verve product, include inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 9/25/13.
