It's A Blue Christmas

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I know my posts have slowed down but I've some family things going on so had to take some time off. Hopefully things are getting back to normal and I will be posting more frequently. Yeah!

To start of the week One Stitch At A Time New Challenge 254 Anything Goes with TIC TAC TOE.
Yep, we want to see your cards designed using our TIC TAC TOE grid.

For this Challenge I made a Christmas card. I know we just got done with Christmas but I just couldn't resist on getting a jump start for this next year. lol  So I used Reeces Scrap Pieces (RSP) - Holiday Centerpiece for this card. And since we had "Lots of Blue" on our TIC TAC TOE grid I used my blue gelatos on this this image. I also printed the image 3 times and layered the poinsettia flowers by fussy cutting them, so there are 3 layers on there. I used gems, pearls and lace.
My TIC TAC TOE  is straight in a row at the top.

Stamp - Stitchy Bear Stamps - Reeces Scrap Pieces (RSP) - Holiday Centerpiece
Paper - Recollections - Starry Night; Create & Craft - lt blue mirror board and blue glitter paper
Inks - Gelatos (used on candle part); Copics (used on flame portion and leaves)
Accessories - Liquid pearls for centers on the poinsettia; Want 2 Scrap - gems; Pearls from stash and lace; Used Anna Grffin embossing folder - Honeysuckle Vines
