Merry Monday Challenge #270 (Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe) & other challenges

I saw this beautiful tag from Connie Babbert from INKspiredtreasures.com and I fell in love with it. So I decided I would put my spin on it for a card.
Here is her tag:

The challenge over at Merry Monday is just perfect for the card I wanted to create. Kelly's challenge involved picking three items from the Tic-Tac-Toe she posted:

I chose to go with Stamping-Die Cut-Red for my card. I used Whisper White as the base and ran it through the big shot using the Quilt Top embossing folder. I then took some glimmer paper and made a banner to go vertical on the card. I then added a piece of gold glimmer paper the same way and adhered it over the glimmer paper. I then die cut the Quilt star from Cherry Cobbler and adhered it with dimensionals. I then stamped Garden Green with the single stitched X and then altering it with Lemon-Lime Twist and fussy cut it out. I adhered it with a dimensional also. I finally added a rhinestone to the middle of it. I loved how it turned out! I hope you do to.  
Here is my card:

I love this set and it is said it is not being carried over. If you want this hurry while supplies last. Come January 2nd this will be no more. If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to be yours!
Just go to the shop with me on the right side bar and be sure my name is on the page when you place your order.
Have a great evening!
