The Flower Challenge #12 - Halfway Reminder

It's the halfway point at The Flower Challenge and we have a tic tac toe grid for you to use for our challenge this month. We'd love you to play along and please join us for our first birthday celebrations next month, there might be some very good reasons to join us!

I chose to the use the bottom line on the grid this time - white, die cuts and blue. I used this lovely Docrafts X-cut die and die cut it three times in dark blue, light blue and white, so that I could inlay the pieces on a mat of pale gold card on my 6x6 card base. I added blue gems to the centre of the flowers. I added the die cut sentiment from a Hunkydory Moonstone die set which I inlaid again before adding on foam tape. Simples!
We're really looking forward to seeing all your fabulous makes from the tic tac toe grid, just remember to make flowers the focal point of your card, and remember to join us again next month for our birthday celebrations!
