Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #11

Good morning!  It's the beginning of a new month and therefore a new Stamping Smiles Designs' Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.  For Challenge #11, I chose the middle column: mixed alphas, ink splatters, and monochromatic. 
This card is really straightforward.  I pulled out Altenew's Vintage Roses, tried to channel my inner Aga (isn't she amazing?!), and got to work stamping.  My mixed alphas are represented with the two different fonts in the sentiment, and my ink splatters were created with a super light mixture of Delicate Silver Shimmer Ink and water.  My first choice would have been to do a blue monochromatic card, but I knew my grandmother would appreciate pink more, so pink it is. :) I made one tragic mistake in the process of making this card, though.  In my haste to get things finished, I quickly pulled the leaf stamp off my block and much to my shock, it ripped in half.  I'm not gonna lie...I'm pretty sad about it.  But you can guarantee I'll be more careful from here on out.  Lesson learned.

Make sure to head to the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge blog next to see how the other designers were inspired and to get all the details on how to join for Challenge #11.  Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have fantastic day!
