Tuesday Throwdown Challenge

It's time to post my Design Team card for the
This week we are having a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge sponsored by Sami Stamps
For this challenge  I used this adorable image called Fancy Pillow which is available here at Sami Stamps.

I sized the digi in my "Paint" program and then printed it three times.  First on the pale green flowered DP, then on the yellow flowered DP, and finally on off white CS.  Using brown colored pencils, I colored just the cat on the CS and then fussy cut it and the yellow flowered pillow and paper pieced them both onto the light green flowered DP.  I added buttercup liquid pearls to the pillow fringe.  The cat received a diamond choker and earing.  The embossed card base has a very pretty pearlescent gloss.  I added a little decorative brown stitching in the upper right corner to attach the birdcage charm and 3 brown pearls.  Finally, I added a simple sentiment on a small die cut scalloped oval.  I tried to keep the bling to a minimum so the card would retain a CAS look.   It's kind of tough using both on the same card, but I think this works pretty well.  
Here's the Tic Tac Toe Board with which I was working  for this week's challenge:
