Staying on Track...or trying to!

Hi All,
Well I have been very productive today! I have done a bunch of paperwork and then I spent a little time stamping and was able to complete two challenges with one card!! I had gone on over to Freshly Made Sketches and they, as usual, had a great sketch:

Then I had checked out the Paper Players this morning and I loved the challenge! It was to complete their "Tic Tac Toe" grid:
                                            
I have seen this periodically come up on challenges but am always overwhelmed with the possibilities. Today I thought I should give it a try. Here is what I came up with:
I chose to go "diagonally" and used the Designer Paper "Beyond the Garden", added a flower from "Flower Fancy" and finally my choice was to add brads and buttons from the Brights collections. I think I will be having my stamp club make this card in May as it highlights many of the items soon to retire.
Thanks so stopping by!
Karin
