CAS-ual-Fridays Challenge #6

I hope you have a great week so far! It's CAS-ual Fridays challenge time! Are you excited? This is a super fun one!
Our sponsor is  Gina K. Stamp set 
Our special guest: Tami Mayberry
As you can see, the theme is Tic Tac Toe. That means you can use any line across, down or diagonal to change elements for your CAS creations. I chose the Diagonal row of "Emboss, Dies or punch and Buttons"

thanks

Have you tried different colors of embossing powder lately (other than black and white)? I think I can get very addictive to these yummy color embossing powders, such as this peach color one. I also added a little piece of felt behind the red button to give it a little interest. The sentiment and squiggle line are from the SRM Stickers.
Please check out our DT's work for more inspiration. Let me tell ya, they ALWAYS knock my socks off!! Please link up your card here by Wednesday, June 15 midnight Eastern Time. Can't wait to come and visit your blogs! AND please remember, if you use a Hero Arts Stamp in your card, you can win some Hero Arts stamps giveaway (please check the sidebar in my blog for details). Now go and Stamp you Hero HeART out!
