Summer Time Swing

It is a Tic, Tac Toe Challenge Crafty Cardmakers this week. Here is the challenge. 

I followed the line from bottom right hand side to top left, summer, stamp or Digi and embossing wet or dry. I used an silhouette stamp that I embossed with a black and silver  embossing powder.  I love the summer scene. I used the tri-fold card and added an extra frame. 

Hope you will join us this week at Crafty Cardmakers.  Remember to stop by our challenge blog to be inspired my the projects of out talented design team.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
