Come and Play Tic Tac Toe!

When I eat out, I change my mind at least 3 times. Don't we all like to have a choice?
Well, this Tic Tac Toe challenge over at Come And Get It Challenges, gives you choices indeed!
I chose Pearls, Twine and Punches:
Here's the Tic Tac Toe board for this challenge over at Come And Get It...

I used an image from this incredible site called, Digital 2 for Tuesday. The images are free, and vintage. This cute digi reflects the simple life back when I was a kid. Actually it goes back further than that, but I can relate. 

When I was a child, we played outside until it was dark, only going home to use the bathroom or eat. I remember getting so dirty! We used upturned roots in the woods to play house. Everyone had their own roots, and they were surrounded by water. I never worried about snakes, like I do now that I work outside in Florida! I have actually killed a snake!

I used Prismacolor pencils to bring the image to life. I use color to make my shadows instead of gray. I embossed the edges of the focal point with gold, as well as the starfish, which is from Crafty Secrets, and the bird, which is an image I designed for H and M Stamps. 

The gull and the sentiment are also by Crafty Secrets. The paper is by Colorbok, and the pearls are from Hobby Lobby. I love the fringe stamp. I picked it up on vacation at A C Moore. 

I am entering this card in some challenges. Why not?
