Polka Doodles #2: Tic Tac Toe

Happy Friday, friends! Time for a Polka Doodle make, so let's get straight to it. This fortnight, we'd like you to play Tic Tac Toe. You know the drill: create a project based on the grid  - working horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

I made a Valentine's card for my young nieces using the image from the Sugar Birdies CD and sweet button paper from the Bonbon Belles Double CD. The look I am going for is fun, juvenile and girlie ... What d'you think? LOL

For embellishments I'm using:
  • pink polka dot ribbon gross grain ribbon and dotted flower by American Crafts;  
  • peach brad by Woodware;
  • Heart and Scalloped Heart dies by X-Cut to cut the hearts;  
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to emboss the scalloped heart; and 
  • buttons and stitching. 
My design follows the:
- Right Column (Diecut - Stitching - Polka Dots) or 
- Middle column (Image - Ribbon - Buttons) or
- Bottom row ( Embossing - Buttons - Polka Dots) or
- Middle row (More Than 2 Layers - Ribbon - Stitching) or
- Bottom left to top right diagonal (Embossing - Ribbon - Diecut).

Decisions ... decisions!

Here's a close-up of that adorable little owl. Isn't he (or she) just the cutest little thing!
