Scraps to Treasures - Tic-Tac-Toe

I just love picking out scraps and seeing what I can do with them, don't you?  I love wading through the wonderful textures, beautiful colors, gorgeous patterns and designs - oh, and the lovely memories I have thinking about original projects the papers were purchased for.  I usually buy more than I I generally have more scraps than any one person needs - have you got the picture yet?  I'm a bit of a paper hoarder!!  
Our sponsor is Scraps to Treasures, and Robin Scott has a Close To My Heart stamp set to give away to a lucky winner - so give everyone crafty comments along the way.  Lots of really lovely projects made from scraps in this hop - be sure to join your favorite sites so you don't miss a thing!I am so excited to be part of this Tic Tac Toe Blog Hop.  Robin is offering blog candy - A Very Merry Christmas stamp set from Close to My Heart.

Our challenge today was to create a project using three "winning" elements on the Tic Tac Toe board above.  My card features the gorgeous Petite Poinsettia stamp from Heartfelt Creations and some Christmas ribbon I bought for pennies after Christmas last a couple tickets to represent my favorite Christmas story - The Polar Express.

The Tic-Tac-Toe elements in my project include a flower, ticket, and ribbon.  Even my poinsettia is leftover from last month's Scraps to Treasures hop of Christmas Tags.  

I added some bling to the center of the poinsettia to give a wonderful finished effect.  For a closer look of the Tic-Tac-Toe elements:

On a personal note...did you know the train in the movie Polar Express is fashioned after the 1225 steam engine kept in Owosso, Michigan...I had the good fortune of engineering this train several years back...just have to add this pic.  :D  Tickets, please!

Here's the entire lineup in case you get lost along the way:
