SOS Challenge #72 Tic Tac Toe

Good Tuesday Afternoon
My card today for the the Shopping Our Stash Tic Tac Toe Challenge
I went with the Middle, horizontal row.  Black Ribbon & Flower.

I'm kind of pleased with how this one turned out.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye, Meadow Lark 6 x 6 pad.  I stamped my "go to" Hello stamp from Hero Arts which must be at least 7 years old.   I've had this package of crocheted flowers for at least three years now and the black ribbon by Gina K  is a couple of years old also.  Oh, I'm proud of myself using up some stashed items.  I decided to use the SB Ribbon Tag Trio Two die to showcase the flower. I took an old piece of white SU ribbon and colored it with a Copic Marker to try and match the flower color.  It's not perfect but I think it will do. A silver brad for the flower center was my finishing touch.    I'm going to try to catch up on a couple more challenges this afternoon if my back will hold out.  Thanks so much for stopping by to say Hi.  See you again soon.
