Cherry Blossoms ~ Color Dare #436 Tic Tac Toe

It's Tic Tac Toe time!  The Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare is doing our most popular challenge this week. Pick your colors by brown, column or diagonal. Then if you want  to use some more of the other colors in the grid you can. There are many Free option to use along with the grid colors so check out the photo below for more info.

We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count. Make any paper craft you like and when you're ready use the link in the post on our home page to join the challenge.  

For my card I used the upper left to lower right diagonal: Peach, Almond, Fern. I thought this would be the perfect combo for a new stamp set I just got. It was pretty easy to make because the only coloring was for the flower centers and branches. To do that I used reinkers and a water brush. I put a drop of reinker on a block then picked up the ink with the water brush to paint the flowers and branches. At the very end I covered the flowers using a Clear Shimmer Brush and added some sparkles.
