StampNation Weekly Challenge May 25th

Today's StampNation Challenge
is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Well, I kinda went off the path without trying to and used both the top row and the first column. Circle/Square/Flower and Circle/Diecut/Stencil.
I started my thought process thinking, I'll do the top row (Circle/Square/Flower), so I started
gathering supplies, I found a couple of stencils to be the circle and the square, grabbed my Rose Garden thinlits for the flower and grabbed some inks and started playing.
When I was all done, I realized I'd also used the first column (Circle/Die Cut/Stencil) too.

I cut the rose from Ranger Watercolor Cardstock and used my distress inks mixed with Perfect Pearls Mist on my craft mat to color it and because there was a ton of color left, I dipped the rest of the watercolor sheet in the ink until it was gone.  This led me to diecutting the rose 2 more times and stacking them for more dimension.  I then diecut the Hello from the stenciled background panel and added tons of foam tape, I used the remaining piece of watercolor cardstock to layer behind the stenciled panel. I added back in the negative pieces to the hello with foam tape too.
Adhered it all to the card base and viola, card finished. 
It's different, but I really like how it turned out.
