Stippled Blossoms 90th Birthday for The Paper Players

Hi there, everyone! It's Tic-Tac-Toe time at The Paper Players! Ann Schach has selected a fun challenge menu for us to chose from, any three in a row, horizontal, diagonal, or vertical. But, hmm, with so many options, where to begin?

For inspiration I checked out my calender of birthdays and other events, and decided I would take this opportunity to make a birthday card for my Mother-in-law, who turned 90 this week. So I started at that corner and worked my way up the Tic-Tac-Toe board with patterned paper and ribbon for my three-in-a-row. 

A special birthday requires a special card, and I hope she liked what I made for her. I customized the card with the Memorable Moments stamp set for the sentiment, and chose the images from Stippled Blossoms. I love all these pretty shades of coordinating blues: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana, and they work perfectly for two-step stamping.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Stippled Blossoms, Memorable Moments
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay
Designer Series Paper: Nuetrals Stack
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay
Tools: Big Shot, Scallop Circle Die (r), Circle Framelits, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder (r)
Accessories: In Color Boutique Details, Coastal Cabana Ruffled Ribbon
(r): Retired Products

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you over at The Paper Players!
