Are You Playing Tic Tac Toe?

You have a few more days to enter Hero Arts Tic Tac Toe Challenge
and win a $30 gift voucher to the Hero Arts Online Store!

From the graphic I chose the vertical row on the left and made a shaped card.
I was a huge fan of shaped cards and every shape of Spellbinders was my best friend.

The background stamp is Lia Griffith's new woodgrain and I watercolored
the butterfly after gold embossing it.

To create a shaped card, cut an identical piece for the back and score about 1/2"
from one edge to create the "hinge". Apply adhesive above the score line and join
the two pieces together at the top. Your card should stand nicely.

And did you notice that I gave my Hero Arts gemstones some love?
They were the perfect touch of bling!

Visit the challenge gallery for inspiration and link up your project(s) by June 30th.
Go here for all the deets and guidelines and we hope you'll play along!
