The Tic-Tac-Toe challenge is a little different as you get to choose the components of your card from the nine available options, as long as you select those in a straight line from those available..
I water coloured up the portion of the background stamp I wanted to include behind the little window frame and while it dried I heat embossed a sentiment stamp (SSS Birthday Sentiments), in platinum embossing powder to match the beak and legs of the little PTI blackbird, drew the branch and leaves with some SU markers and adhered everything together onto a navy 11.5 cm square card base.
I finished off the card with three gold sprinkles...I couldn't see how to make them less gold and more platinum...I dabbed some with silver onto a couple of the larger gold ones and only succeeded in making a mess! (Not like me at all!).
