Tic Tac Toe

This card is for the crafters challenge
The three elements are lace,charm and ribbon

Covered a wooden plaque with Backing Paper, then a smaller panel put onto card with a corner flourish adhered to panel, next backing paper was patterned with  writing  Adhered ribbon braid down side added clock and flower charms to it  die cut a butterfly made the flowers  added purple feather added two pieces of lace to bottom printed out and coloured a prima doll stamp with copics adhered with foam to 3d her.Threaded ribbon to top of plaque to hang it
Think this will go in my grand daughters bedroom

Thought I would try something different other than a card.Always wanted to give book folding a try but thought it would be too complicated
 Took me about two hours to fold the book  and as the folding increases it gets a bit bulky so I had to use clips and clothes pegs to keep it all together but I got there in the end
After gluing it shut it was time to decorate
I glued the lace to top and bottom with the hot glue gun,glued in the braided ribbon for it to hang with,I made all the flowers  using three different dies  cut butterflies with a die, all on the cuttle bug glued them on with the glue gun, cut two birds on the cut n scan glued them together and sat them into the fold,glued  with the glue gun added the ladybird and charm
Am going to put this into the crafters cafe challenge



Well it has been ages since I have been on my blog, a  bit of a set back with my health and due to that we have sold our caravan  and bought a bus so we can start to do the things we had planned for our retirement. I have a cupboard  in the bus for some of my craft things enough so i don't go through craft withdrawals. We are off in a couple of hours and I have all my gear in the bus, so I am ready
