Good morning Krafty friends! Hope you've all had a great week.

Our weekly Kraftin' Kimmie challenge is brought to us by our lovely hostess, Karen who want us to play Tic Tac Toe. She's created a fun game board with different embellishments/elements. Your task this week is to choose any three of those elements for your projects that form a row vertically, horizontally or diagonally. (You can find the Tic Tac Toe board on the KKS Blog)

For my card, I chose to use Blue, Gems and Dies which formed a diagonal line on the challenge game board. This gorgeous sprite is Rayne. I absolutely LOVE how her hair transforms into water...which of course meant that her hair just had to be blue! I think this may have been my first time attempting locks of this colour! I used several different dies on my card. The corners are Contempo Compass Statement Corner from Dies by SCACD. The image was cut out and matted with Spellbinders. The flourishes are a combination of Memory Box and MFT dies. I also added a few rhinestones for the gems.

Rayne was stamped on Neenah and coloured with Copics. I added a bit of Stardust Stickles to her wings.

Make sure to pop by the KKS Blog to check out what the rest of the Krafty Girls have created for the Tic Tac Toe challenge. If you play along this week, you could be the lucky winner of the stamp seen on Karen's gorgeous project. Just make sure to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp to be eligible.

A few things to note:

Wow,your card is stunning! Love the black matting and the delicate die cuts with the beautiful blues.I especially like the die cut frame around Rayne. She's one of my favs from that fairy collection. I'm looking forward to coloring up some blue watery locks soon too.
