Sept Diva Dare & VLVSep - Something Special

Joining the fun for September week 1 of Viva La Sketch challenge VLVSep2013 and combining this month's Diva Dare Challenge which is to create a card or project using inspiration from a tic-tac-toe board.  For example:  x’s and o’s, hugs & kisses, squares, circles, grids, etc.     
Here is my card below:
Right away, I went through my paper stash and pulled out Love Impressions by SU, which already had some X's and O's plus love & kisses to get me started. In addition, I had just bought the Open Scallop Doily by MFT so it was on top of my area ready to use for the first time.
From there, I used the envelope from the Take Note (Verve) stamp set as my center (middle) and focused on doing something diagonal across. This is when I thought to use the arrow up above and added the Joyful Blooms flower diagonally below. The leaves come from the set Bloom & Grow which is one of my favorites along with using the Elegant Leaves Die to help me cut it out.
Basically, it you look at it (Tic-Tac-Toe) diagonally (Flower, envelope, and arrow). Sentiment also came from the set Take Note (Verve). I must admit, this card was fun to make and a great sketch to work with. For more details on the Diva Dare Challenge, click here and join the fun!! For Viva La Sketch challenge, click here.
I always enjoy looking at many cards from different blogs and many times find myself looking at the supply lists and found that I love the visual pictures when they have them. Therefore, I will be doing my best to add the pictures of the supplies I use on a card as long as I can link to it.
Also, it's a good way to keep track of what I have (library). Let me know if you like the visual picture list of supplies used on a card?
