Double Trouble #61 - Purple Roses

Welcome to this week's edition of Double Trouble! 

This week, Things 1, 2 and 3 are asking a lot of our participants. 

Here is the reduced image to show the requirements - please visit the Double Trouble Blog for additional information. 

Here is the tic-tac-toe board.

My tic-tac-toe is diagonal - I used Emboss (Dry/Hot), Flowers and Colour Green.

I chose to create a card with a set of flowers inside the wreath. The wreath was cut from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge (x2) and offset to make it look full. I then had to trace that outline to cut a piece of white cardstock on which to stamp my flowers as trying to stamp on an embossed background is almost impossible. The flowers were stamped and coloured and then brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. The white background was embossed with a stitched pattern. The sentiment was stamped and gently inked around the edges to set it off from the background. I coloured a few sequins and added them around the wreath.

I am also linking up my card with Cupcake Inspirations.
