Tic-tac-toe Friday ....

... CAS-ual Friday's challenge this week is in the form of a tic-tac-toe grid - where we get to pick a line, vertically, horizontally or diagonally.  So the possibilities are endless - but for me it was trying to decide which line to pick.



I finally settled on the diagonal which includes "buttons, dies(punches) and emboss".  And because I'd been working on the Jingle Belles challenge immediately before making this card - my CAS-ual Friday card is also a Christmas card - but hey that's good - I'm up to 27 Christmas cards now!! :)  This is a very clean and simple design - and I'm rather pleased with it!




Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Festive Foliage, Asian Gardens; The sentiment is from a bargain bin set
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Garden Green
Accessories:  Stampin' Up! - Bauble punch; Cuttlebug folder - Snowflakes

I've combined the embossing and punching in the bauble element and the buttons are the holly berries - easy!

That's all for now.  My friend Heather has just arrived so we're going to have a long gossip.  And, more importantly, we're off the the local craft shop :)))  Seeya later!

Wow that bauble!!!
I love the branches; they look quite "simple" but they add ( is this english??) a wonderful and elegant touch to your card.
Love it!
