Seize the Paper Players!

It's my first time playing over at The Paper Players - I had printed out their last several challenges & didn't make it in time. I LOVE tic-tac-toe style challenges, so it was just a matter of narrowing down what I wanted to do. I've used the sketch from Seize the Birthday #20 as well.

Supplies: papers from Sassafras 'wee bundle;' Paper Smooches stamps (sentiment & leaves); Peeled Paint & Shabby Shutters distress inks; Memory Box leaf die; felt banner & ribbons from stash; Corner Chomper

The card base & circle were rescued from another project that went in a different direction - the sentiment is from one of my new-to-me Paper Smooches sets that I picked up from Barb's crafty sale. I should really just stamp it on every birthday card I send, because I am never on time ;)

Here's the tic-tac-toe grid from The Paper Players - I've played the third row down, birthday-yellow-ribbon. 


And here's the sketch from Seize the Birthday #20:

Pretty bday card, Jessi! I like that clean and simple sketch. It's been a while since I played in a challenge, and considering how hard it is to go up steps right now, it will be even longer!
