Jingle Belles TIC TAC TOE, take 2!

The Jingle Belles are Tic Tac Toe-ing again this week!  Here again is the playing board:

This time I chose to go across the middle:  flowers, red or green, and ribbon.  Here's my card:

For the flower, of course I had to use my Spellbinders poinsettia die again, cut out of vellum.  I distressed the edges of the white panel with scissors and Frayed Burlap DI.  Dyed the seam binding with the dark red ink used to stamp the swirls, and added some Fired Brick to add dimension to the color a bit.  I was hoping the poinsettia would stand out a bit more, but I didn't want to distress it at all...it looks better IRL, I promise!

Well, that's all for tonight...I may start another card, or I may just check out Pinterest!  :)  Take care!
