Happy Father's Day

Happy Wednesday!!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a tic tac toe challenge for you:
No automatic alt text available.
Here is the card I created:
 I did a tutorial on Monday as to how I turned these palm tree line images into the silhouettes you see here.  I also promised a card using this image and here it is.  I followed a tutorial by Teresa Momber that you can find here. I got a little carried away and sort of forgot about the tic tac toe challenge.  Oops!  So, I decided the row I used the best was the top one: tone on tone, masculine, twine or ribbon.  I didn't exactly use the tone on tone on the front of the card, so I had to add it to the inside where I stamped the palm trees in gray ink onto the gray card base.
I hope you will play along with us this week.  And if you need any of the stamps I used today, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon in my left sidebar.
