CFC100 - Absolutely wishing you a happy day

Happy May, and happy Friday!  This week at CAS-ual Fridays is extra special.  Why, you ask? Well, lemme tell ya.  We're celebrating the 100th challenge and our second birthday!  YAY!  So we're having an extra fun challenge with a TON of prizes!  Check it:
CFC 100: We're celebrating with our top 10 challenges of all time! Since one of those challenges was tic tac toe, I've made it into a board of the remaining top 9 challenges! Choose a row to play. Play as often as you'd like, the challenge runs for 2 weeks!

And for this extra special challenge, there are going to be some extra special prizes.  Not only will the winner AND the 4 VIPs receive prizes (, but the 5 contenders will also win prizes.  That's 10 chances to win, ladies!  This week's sponsor is Ellen Hutson, who will award the winner a $25 gift certificate to spend here.
And the 4 VIPs will receive $15 gift certificates from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, while each of the five contenders will receive the stamp set of her choice!
Okay, so for this challenge I made a card that fits two of the rows on the tic tac toe board.  Plus bling.  Had I included embossing, it would've fit three of the rows.  LOL.  And now for the paper yummies:
Sorry about the caca photo - I couldn't find the right lighting.  In real life, the "ABSOLUTELY" die cut looks a lot more crisp and shows up better against the gingham patterned paper.  Oh well, you get the idea. I've had this die for at least 6 months, but this was my first time using it.  I don't really know why, 'cause I LOVE it!  I used a corrugated kraft card base and October Afternoon patterned papers, including the flower grouping, which I fussy-cut from a paper.  The die and stamp are from this Simon Says Stamp set.  Add some bling, and voila!  Here are some close-ups:

Oh yeah, by the way, I used the top row of the tic tac toe board (polka dots, kraft, and dies), and the card also fits the left column (polka dots, square card, and birthday).  Plus the bling square.  Which row tickles your fancy?  Play along as many times as you like for this special 2-week challenge!  Thanks so much for looking!

Supplies: card base: Recollections; patterned papers: October Afternoon; die/stamp: Simon Says Stamp; ink: Tsukineko; bling: The Paper Studio

  3. Love the contrast of the corrugated base with the girly colors and flowers! Also really like the diagonal placement of the sentiment strip -- truly in keeping with the Bingo card theme. TFS!
