Manic Challenge Monday #1

Today is the first of a fun new scheduled posting! Today is Manic Challenge Monday which means that I am going to share with you a fun challenge that I found online and what I made from that challenge! The best part about this is that if you absolutely love what I have made you can buy it!!!! That's right all of my Manic Challenge Monday items are for sale! So if you love it and can't live without it send me an e-mail at saying you MUST HAVE IT! =)

Today's challenge was posted by CAS-ual Fridays here on Blogger. You can find the challenge at the link below but to help save some time I will tell you what it is all about!
I had so much fun with this challenge and I just know that you will as well!! This week at CAS-ual Fridays they are playing Tic Tac Toe. That's right that fun and often frustrating game has turned crafty! Each 3-in-a-row line holds a recipe and you get to choose the row that works for you. I chose the center row going down. (I will probably try others but that row worked for me because I had all the materials on hand.)Choose a row: across, down, or diagonal and then Create a Clean & Simple design using those elements in your project.
As you can see my row has Gems, Dies/punch, and flowers. This is what I came up with. Its a fun rock styled birthday card!

I used a cupcake die-cut for that yummy fun birthday touch!

For my Gems I used plain crystal rhinestones, 8 to be exact in 2 different sizes!

For my flower I used a small chipboard button flower in black with glitter. (Because we all know how I can't resist the glitter!)

Please enjoy and have a very happy crafty day!
