A Holiday Treat - Color Dare #413 using AHSC ##387

Here is my Design Team Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare "TicTacToe" using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #387.  The sketch reminded me of a couple of books on top of each other and I had just the right die for this.  Cut the book dies in multiple sizes in French Vanilla, Sangria and a Design Paper for the words on the pages. The first book was adhered directly to the background and the second book was added using 3D thin foam tape to show dimension.  Scored the middle of the book giving the page separation and more dimension. What goes with books... a hot cup of coffee, hot chocolate or tea and a comfortable chair... enjoy.  The cup was stamped with a Holiday sentiment.      

Please pop over to ColorMyHeart Color Dare and Atlantic Hearts and Caffeine Fueled to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges.
