Buttoned Birthday Flowers for {PP #139}

Hello there and Happy Easter to you (if you celebrate the holiday). It is time for another fun challenge over at the Paper Players. This week, the lovely and talented Jaydee is our hostess with a "Tic-Tac-Toe" challenge. Pick a line across, down or diagonally on the board pictured above.  Or if you are feeling REALLY adventurous...go for every square on the board! Ha! We would just love it if you would join us and play along.
I decided to create my card with the pink and green colors, birthday card theme, using pearls as an accent. Although, there are SO many fun possibilities with this tic-tac-toe challenge, don't you think? I also used Rita's awesome sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge for inspiration.
The Button Buddies stamp set is one of my all-time favorites! So many fun images, for a variety of occasions. I think it is one of those sets that everyone should own, because it is really versatile. I went with a polka dot theme for my card...polka dots are just plain F-U-N! I dressed up the image with some Bitty Button flowers, accented with some pearls. I added texture with the embossing folders, ribbon and buttons. All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of this post. 
Please join us this week over at the Paper Players! The challenge is open through Friday, April 5th at NOON (PDT). Check out what the rest of the Design Team created with this week's challenge:
