The Paper Players Sketch # 273

This is a very versatile Tic Tac Toe Challenge from Sandy at The Paper Players, lots of fun options to use.

I think my card could qualify for either  a diagonal or a horizontal line item, what do you think?

I couldn't help myself a few weeks ago when Papertrey Ink released their November stamp and die sets, this "Winter Woods" set just sang out to me.  It reminds me of winter days in MI when you could spot a beautiful cardinal in the white snow, just a lovely sight (even though there was snow).  My inspiration or should I say CAS came from Nichole Heady with just a few minor changes. I did use the SU newer embossing folder for the falling snow, but it doesn't show up in the photo.

I'm sending this card up North to a friend in MI who celebrates a December birthday, I'm thinking this card is perfect for him, snow or no snow, what do you think?

Here's a side shot showing the glittery snow on the snow bank.

That's it for today, I'd love to hear from you, won't you leave a comment

Nancy this is very pretty. Love the RED bird against the white birch trees. The blue background is perfect to show off the falling snow... and love the sparkle of the hills of snow.
So funny... I haven't done in a challenge in forever and finally do this one and you did too! Your card is very eye appealing and could be a winner!
Good Luck

How pretty! I agree, the red bird just pops off the card against the dark background. Love your trees! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players, hope to see you again soon!

Gorgeous colours and layout. The red bird is so perfect against the background. Yes a perfect masculine card x

Nancy, I can see why this set called out to you - and you showcased it beautifully. I love the blue background with the snowfall and the fabulous pop of red with the cardinal. Wonderful card. So glad you joined us at the Paper Payers this week
