ABC Challenges - 3 in a Row, C4C184, Divas by Design - Add a Number and STB#16

Happy Monday!  This week at ABC Challenges we have the really fun challenge of TicTacToe - 3 in a Row.  You get to pick 3 items in a row (up, down, across, diagonal) to make your beautiful card.  My card uses the top row - Ribbon, Use a Punch and Designer Series Paper.  Take a look:

Card details: The DSP is from my stash of retired stock called "Just Add Cake".  I used three punches the cupcake punch, the 1 3/4" circle punch and the 2 1/4" scallop circle punch.  I edged the DSP and the circle with the Crumb Cake (Kraft) ink.  

The 3 in a Row challenge is always a challenge for me because I have to force myself to narrow down my options and just go with one choice.  But I can almost drive myself crazy thinking about all the other cards I could make if I just choose a different row, column, etc.  To help myself put some framework around my choice I go searching for a color and/or sketch challenge that I can piggyback off of and help me get to designing.  I used the challenges noted below to help me do just that.  I know that the other ladies on the DT for ABC Challenges have also prepared some great cards using more of our TicTacToe options so please pop on over there and see what they've made for your inspiration.  I hope that you will decide to play along with us this week.

I am also entering this card in:

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C184 (colors of Light Pink, Kraft, Black and Cream) - note the circles within the DSP are cream colored but I accidentally used white on my main circle with the cupcake, I hope it doesn't disqualify me - if so I understand.
