The Paper Players Challenge #152 & Color Throwdown #248

This weeks challenge at The Paper Players is a tic tac toe challenge. I'm very excited to do this one as it will be my first.

I also combined this challenge with the Color Throwdown challenge.

I chose the diagonal line from bottom left to top right (embossing, bling, birthday). I thought the colors went well with the card theme. Here's my entry:

All items used are Stampin' Up! products unless otherwise noted.

Pretty in Pink & Cool Caribbean are retired colors. So I substituted Pool Party for Cool Caribbean. I thought it was a pretty close match. I had the Pretty in Pink ink still so I used that but you could easily substitute it with Pink Pirouette (126956) or Blushing Bride (131198). Either would look just as nice!
Stamps: Everything Eleanor (124164C) (131987W), Simply Sketched {Hostess} (129672C) (129669W)
Ink: Crumb Cake (126975), Pretty in Pink (Retired)
Paper: Crumb Cake (120953), Pool Party (122924), Very Vanilla (101650),
The Perfect Touch: Clear Embossing Powder (109130), Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246), Dazzling Details (124117)
Cool Tools: Elegant Lines Embossing Folder (Retired), Top Note Die (113463), Big Shot  Die - Cutting Machine (113439), Standard Cutting Pads (113475), Heat tool (129053), Aqua Painters (103954)
