Tic Tac Toe: Mother's Day

The current Tic Tac Toe Challenge inspired me to create this Mother's Day card.

Tic Tac Mother's Day

Even though this card is still quite clean, my MIL is not a clean and simple person.  I often worry that she might think my clean and simple cards might seem like I haven't put enough work into them.  So when I noticed that the Tic Tac Toe Challenge included "designer paper" which I don't often use, I looked in each direction and realized the middle column worked for me!

The "layers" part of the challenge inspired me to add the second strip of patterned paper and the pattern on top of the orange flower. That's a lot of layers and patterns for me!!  The paper is an older set from Stampin' Up called Flowerpot. I love the mix of colors.  I found an older die set from Simon Says that had the same general look as the paper. And finally an old sentiment from Verve.  There's nothing new on this card!

Thank you to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge for the inspiration!
