Love You

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Tic Tac Toe

And here is my card for your inspiration:

Oh, my goodness, I LOVE this adorable little bear!!  I was just given it by Di herself (I did get to pick it out) and had to use it right away!  So sweet!!  So, for my tic-tac-toe challenge (which I love, by the way!  It's pretty much up to you to decide what the challenge is.) I ran the entire board.  I used the color blue, a handcolored image, stickles (on my flower petals), 1 circle, a digi image, dies, a fun fold (inspired by Jennifer McGuire to create this fun z-fold), pearls and a sentiment!  In the photo below you can see how my fold opens up:
With the fold, it won't stay flat, so I created a little "belly" band out of the heart border along the bottom.  The little bear in the sitting position inspired to me to have a little fun.  I used the "out of the box technique" to make it look as if she is sitting on the edge of the die cut.  I added silver stickles to the edges of the flower petals and finished off the whole card with some small heart pearls.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.
