Pile It On! Challenge - Tic-Tac-Toe

This week at Pile It On! we're playing:

'Tic-Tac-Toe'
Simply choose a row, column or even go diagonal if you like, and be sure to include those items on your project.

Our sponsor this week is Simply Betty:
Prize - a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Simply Betty!

I picked the top row (Patterned Paper - Metal - For a Child) and used one of my oldest (but still most favourite stamps) Birthday Dog' by Penny Black. I coloured her (I usually think of Birthday Dog as a 'him', but I had some new pretty papers that I wanted to use!) using watercolour pencils to match the 'New Bloom' papers (from First Edition). I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and  black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black, the ribbon is from Poppicrafts, the bradsare BasicGrey, the flower and button are from my stash, and the twine is by Dovecraft.


Here are the challenges I piled on:
