Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #19

Hello and welcome to a brand new month! October is just about my favorite month in the year and it's definitely a welcome change in the weather! A new month also means a new challenge from the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge and that's always welcome!

For my card, I chose the top row - color inspiration (choose your own), polka dots, and birthday.

Here's the fun color inspiration I found on Pinterest.

I just love the blues and yellows in this palette. Especially those yellow leaves! I love when fall comes around and the leaves start changing!

I decided to use the blues for my flower and keep my leaves in lovely shades of yellow. Using the Majestic Blooms stamp set from Altenew, I layered my flower in blues and then fussy cut around the image with my scissors. I stamped my leaves randomly on my card panel so they would stick out from behind my flower image. I adhered my polka dot paper to a card base and then adhered my panel with some foam tape after stamping the sentiment in my MISTI to make sure it was straight. I adhered my flower directly to the panel with some multi-medium matte adhesive. It's simple, but striking!

I hope you'll join us for the current challenge! It's a fun one!
