Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

Hello everybody, Welcome back to Crafty Time 4U, Today i am sharing with you an easy project that I created to entered the Design team call for the Stamping Smiles Design "Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge" I read all about this challenge and I am so excited about it, I love the whole idea behind it and I the endless possibilities that I can created with.
I hope you'll like what I had created for you

 I cut the pillow boxes from some craft wood grain embossed card stock, (by Ellen Hutson) then I used the Lawncuts stitched leaves to cut some leaves from white card stock and gold foil paper, I color the leaves using Distress Inks and a blending tool. I also sponge the pillow boxes with a little "Tea Dye Distress Ink." to give them some more texture. 
I wrapped some "Gold Sparkle Lawn Trimmings" twine by Lawn Fawn and I cut a a little banner to stamp the sentiment. I used the "I'm so thankful" sentiment from the "Happy Feast" stamp set and I adhered the banner and the leaves on top the twine using permanent big glue dots.

Very simple project for the Thanksgiving table or for a small Thanksgiving gift, I love all the possibilities this challenge brings you. I used the bottom three elements of the "tic-tac-toe board: twine, craft, and wood grain but I also incorporated some sparkle and leaves.
