Labelled with birthday hugs

Hello, crafting friends!
It's Thursday and time for another Tic Tac Toe challenge! Joanne has come up with a board bursting with inspiration:

Today's card was made with The Greetery's Oopsie Daisy stamp set. I stamped some of the stalks from the set onto a card panel and added three flower heads in Stampin' Up's Fresh Freesia ink. Coloured pencils were used to add a bit of detail and depth to the flowers and stalks. I cut the panel out with a pretty hem stitched frame die from Spellbinders.

The set also has a twine image which I stamped in black ink to 'tie' the daisies into a little posy. I thought it would be fun to add a little tag so I die-cut one from Stampin' Up's Wrapped Flowers die set and stamped it with a tiny sentiment from a Clearly Besotted set. 

The tag was tied up with black twine and popped up on a dimensional pad. To finish, I added a sentiment from MFT that worked well with the little tag. 
Okay, it's over to you now! Which row or column will you choose? Or will you go for one of the diagonals? Do hop over to the Tic Tac Toe challenge site to admire all the amazing cards the team has made to inspire you, as well as Cindy, our special guest for this week :) You'll find the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post and you can use it to share your own creation with us. We can't wait to see what you make!

I'm linking this card up with  Addicted to Stamps and More where the theme is Dies and/or Stencils.

I took Eva for a walk in our local park this morning and strolled through the field area where stalls were being set up for an event celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Eva has walked through this field many times before but there have NEVER been stalls in it and she was very keen to let me know that she had noticed this!! Luckily I was able to distract her by suggesting a nice swim in the river where she enjoyed retrieving sticks for a while before returning home.

Sending hugs,
