Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #4

I'm so happy to share my card for the 4th Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.  I chose to do the diagonal again: thank you, distress inks, plants.  I've always loved PTI's Petite Pots, but somehow haven't hardly used them, so this challenge was a great reason to pull them out. 
I used the simplest application of distress inks and just stamped with them.  I love the richness of Distress Inks, the Mowed Lawn ink in particular.  I added a bit of shading to the pots by lightly inking them the first time and then inking up just the edges of the stamp again and stamping it a second time.  The leaf images are meant to have flowers stamped atop them, but I think they look beautiful all on their own.  I'm loving one layer cards lately, and the Simon Says: One Layer Challenge couldn't have been more timely. ;)
I had the best time visiting and seeing everyone's creations last challenge. Can't wait to see how this next challenge inspires you.  Make sure to go to the Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge blog to get all the details and see how all the other designers were inspired!
