Guest Designing for TTTC100

I'm so happy to be guest designing again for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  This is challenge #100 & I think you'll really like the board!  Lots of options to make an Easter/Spring card, if you want.  
Yellow is not really one of my colors, but I do like to use it for Spring cards.  I chose the diagonal row of Yellow, Free (I used die cuts) & Gingham.  I looked up gingham & learned that it is white & one other color with evenly placed horizontal & vertical lines of equal size.  
I didn't have any printed paper that qualified, which is actually good since it made me finally use my W&W Ticking Stripe stencil.  After using Pixie Spray (really does make a difference, in my opinion) I applied Distress Oxide fossilized amber with a sponge applicator.  The stencil has big stripes, so I just turned it & applied again to make the pattern.  If you know me, you know I love wreaths.  I honestly don't know how many stamps, dies & stencils I have!  However, that didn't stop me from buying Tim Holtz Funky Wreath die set when a local craft store put it on sale over the holidays & shipped it for free!  I started by ink blending Distress Oxides/Inks on strips of Bristol paper.  One had DO rustic wilderness & twisted citron.  The other had DI vintage photo & frayed burlap.  Then I die cut the twig wreath from the brown panel & the leafy wreath from the green one.  
The die set also includes some extra branches, so I die cut a few from the green scraps & added them for a bit more fullness. The W&W hello die was cut multiple times & glued together. I added Golden Rod Stickles to the word & arranged the MFT rolled roses die cut from felt.    
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
