This week I am playing along, for the first time, in a challenge over at Our Creative Corner.  The challenge is to:

  Play along with us in a game of papercrafting tic-tac-toe. Choose "three in a row" on the Tic-Tac-Toe board and make sure you work those elements into your papercraft project.

I've chosen the vertical column of Flowers, Yellow and Glitter.  It's a little hard to see in my photo, but in addition to using Stampin' Up!'s silver Glimmer Paper, I've used Dazzling Details to affix silver pearls to the flower centres.

Do you think it's "brad overkill" on this card??  I love using brads, but think I might've got a bit carried away!

Stamps: Field Flowers, Nature Walk, Elements of Style
Card: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
DSP: Flirtatious Specialty and Daffodil Delight Patterns Designer Series Papers
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Basic Black stampin' pads
Other: Flower Burst embosslit die, Whisper White organza ribbon, Beautiful Wings embosslits, Neutrals brads, sponge dauber, corner rounder punch, 3/4" and 1" circle punches, stampin' dimensionals, mini glue dots


  1. What a fun challenge, I am on my way over to check it out.
    Beautiful card and you can never have to many brads! Love the glitter.

  4. Hello Christine
    And welcome to the OCC Challenge, this is a wonderful card.
    The flowers are just blooming and splendidly Yellow.
    It is a colour that is identified with imagination and enlightenment, glowing with the intensity of sunlight itself, it is cheerful mellow and soft.... no brad overload for me, if you like working with them, why not use them I say.
