Tic-Tac-Toe Birthday for Paper Players #165

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! This week at the Paper Players, our very own Ann is our hostess with a fab "Tic-Tac-Toe" challenge to get crafty with. Pick a line on the board, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I went with the first row: Ribbon-Patterned Paper- Birthday. I also added some embossing and pearls, so I hit 5 of the 9 squares. 
I am kind of obsessed with the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper, so that was where I started. I love those patterns! The music note paper paired with the sentiment have me humming "Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to yooouuu!" I embossed the sentiment from the You're Amazing stamp set for some added shine and topped it off with some pearls. There is really nothing super-special about this card, but I like how it came out. I hope you do, too. :) All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of the post. 
Please join us over at the Paper Players The challenge is open through Friday, October 4th, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.
