Simple, non-traditional, Christmas Greetings

Yup I have a CAS Christmas card to share with you today. Trying to make a non-traditional card, using the Tic-Tac-Toe board from ColorDare - not easy for this one!

I used a border stamp to create the line down the centre with Tatty Ted grey ink. This was only a small border stamp, so I needed to do some repeats, which you can see where the joins are, but I still think it looks ok. I then die-cut the snowflake and heart from some spotty paper in my stash, using Marianne Createables dies. Finally I added a sentiment using a brighter green than usual for a Christmas card.

This followed the bottom row of the board:
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Christmas @ Sweet Stampin' - Non-traditional colours
jinglebelles - snow much fun
MMM #99 Beginning with a B (Border stamp)
The Paper Players #447 Sketch

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
