September Diva Dare

When I came across this card by Jennifer Shults, I was instantly inspired to participate in Verve's Diva Dare Contest!  The "Dare" is to come up with a card that is somehow inspired by the game of Tic-Tac-Toe.  Taking inspiration from Jen's card, I also went with a 'hugs and kisses' them.  

I love to quill, so when the contest guidelines suggested a grid as a possible tic-tac-toe element to use, I immediately knew I wanted to use the weaving technique that many quillers use, and weaved a grid-like background for my card.

(I think I'll hang on to this one til next Valentine's Day and give it to my hubby!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Verve 'Making A Statement'
Ink: CTMH Black
Paper: Recollections, CTMH Kraft
Other: CTMH Baker's Twine, glitter; clothespin & pearls from my stash; Sharpie fine tip marker (to draw game pieces)
