Merry Christmas

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.
And here is the card I created:
I used the diagonal: twine, texture and sponging.  I embossed the background panel with my favorite snowflake embossing folder and then lightly sponged on some ink to bring out the texture.  The sparkle from the red glitter paper really adds an elegant touch.
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.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Christmas" and "Snowflake Solid (sm)"
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 12" stitched rectangle; PTI "Bitty Buttons 2" die
Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder
