September Diva Dare - Day 5

Hello friends!  It's Laurie S. here, and it's my turn to share how I answered this month's Diva Dare! 

So what we're daring you to create this month is a card or project using inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board. For example: x’s and o’s, hugs & kisses, squares, circles, grids, you get the idea.

I went quite literally with this month's theme, making a grid of sorts by stitching on the vellum cardstock.  I used flowers as the "o's"and hearts as the "x's".  The flowers are from Verve's Dream Big set (each cut out using the Scalloped Flowers Die Set).  The small heart, large heart, and sentiment are all from the Love Notes set.  I cut the large heart out using the Jotted Heart Die.  The pretty aqua seam binding ribbon is from Verve's Signature Ribbon Collection (have I mentioned how thrilled I am that Verve is now offering ribbon?).

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.
