Tic-tac-toe for Dutch Dare

Hi everyone, there's a new challenge over at Dutch Dare. This week we have a tic-tac-toe board for you.

 (real or faux)
Card For A Child
Birthday Card

We're being sponsored by the fabulous Saturated Canary, who very kindly gave us an image to work with. I used Grad Girl 2013.

I chose the top line - stitching, bling and ribbon. I've coloured the image using Copics and used Messy Rabbit backing papers (from a cd). I've used self adhesive heart shaped diamonds.The red ribbon features the stitching and I've added spotty washi tape to the centre of it.  I've used black card to mat everything. The card itself is 8x8. This is the first of a few graduation cards I'll need to make in the next few months as my eldest daughter Rachel has just graduated, along with quite a few of her friends. I'm really proud of her for getting a 2:1 in Early Childhood Studies. She's currently enjoying a week's break in Majorca. The house seems strangely quiet without her. It didn't take long to get used to having her home again once she finished university. Today I've spent the day with my younger daughter Nikki and had a lovely time just mooching round a shopping outlet. We really must do it more often.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. I hope all of you in the UK are enjoying the lovely weather. Hope I'll see you again soon.
