May Stampsmith Challenge--Tic Tac Toe

Hi Dreamers!
Happy May Day!!  Since it is the first of the month, that always means a new Stampsmith Challenge!!  this month we have a Tic Tac Toe challenge!!  How fun is that!!  There is a prize too--a $21  gift certificate to a random winner!!

TSC42: Tic Tac Toe

I choose to use Ribbon, Pattern Paper, and Pink for my Design Team Card:

This stamp is called Ophelia (Large, Facing Right).  And, doesn't she look lovely all in pink!!??  I stamped Ophelia with Versa Fine Onyx Black ink on smooth pink CS (Blush Blossom from Stampin' Up).
There are three pattern papers from K & Company.

 I added  a die cut frame (Sizzix)--- cut from the pattern paper.  I covered the frame with Rock Candy Crackle Paint (Ranger) and let that dry. 

The bird is die cut (Tim Holtz die) from a pale yellow Pattern paper.  I added lots of pink buttons and some tiny pearls around the frame

And, lastly, a great big bow tied with wide Sheer pink ribbon.    Can't wait to see what you come up with for the challenge.  The Tic Tac Toe gives you lots of scope.  All you have to do is use one Stampsmith stamp.   I hope you join us for all the fun!
