Fall birthday

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week we have a fun tic tac toe board for you:
No automatic alt text available.
I used the center row: buttons, stitching (I used a stitched die) and color wash.  Here is my card:
 I used gelatos mixed with water to create my color wash on watercolor paper for my image panel.  Then, I stamped the image on top and colored it with my markers.  I masked my sentiment to line the words up side by side instead of stacked on top of each other.  The olive green ribbon was a small piece left in my bits and pieces stash, but it worked perfectly for the embellishments after I added some kraft colored ribbon to go along with it.  The photo below shows the stitched rectangle a bit better.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you check out the House blog for the full details and to see what the rest of the DT has created.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out the 10% off your entire order coupon over in my left side bar.

I love how the background paper matched your beautiful tree perfectly, and those bits of ribbon off to the side! Lovely card!

Oh how pretty - still waiting here for the leaves to turn. Love the little scraps of ribbon you used. Very nice.

What a fabulous fall card, perfect choice as the leaves are beginning to turn-the ribbon and background paper are a perfect compliment to your lovely tree!

Excellent card! Love how the ribbon gives that special extra something. Ingenious idea with the Gelatos. Amazing composition and a great card. Thank you for entering our challenge at Brown Sugar :)

Beautiful Autumn tree! You have it colored so vibrantly that I thought it was die-cuts. Wonderful details, too, with the background paper and ribbons. Thank you for playing with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments and hope you can join us again soon.

What a gorgeous card - so many lovely elements - my favourite are the pieces of ribbon by the side - I could just sit under that tree and read a book - thanks for joining us at HSS this week.

VERY nice fall card, Heather!!! You used our Try Stampin' on Tuesday stitching challenge to creating a really beautiful card! The stitching is subtle, but really adds a lot to the water color panel you created with gelatos. Thank you for sharing another one of your beautiful creations with us at TSOT! -Donna
