It's Time for TIC-TAC-TOE at the Outlawz Challenges

I don't often create cards for guys, and yet I have so much fun doing so, you'd think I'd be whipping them out willy-nilly! LOL
Well, today I created this very masculine card for the Outlawz Greetings challenge. Their theme this week is to choose a line from the TIC-TAC-TOE Grid and create a project, anything, as long as it uses the three items in the TIC-TAC-TOE line you've chosen, and a Sentiment on the front.
I got to play with an awesome image set from Dee Dee's Digis called "Tool Time." This digital set includes: 9 outline images, 9 pre-colored images, 9 white-filled layering images, and 9 sentiments, in JPG and PNG file formats. All set elements have a resolution of 300 dpi/ppi, and are easily resizable to fit your crafting needs.
When a sentiment is broken into two parts, I like to create an easel card for a bigger impact, especially those zingers that make us smile or laugh. Here, I created the front of my card with the toolbox image, colored with my trusty Copics. I "framed" it with a few photo die-cuts and added the first part of the sentiment.
When standing up, the second part of the sentiment delivers the zinger, and I used the pre-colored image of a screwdriver to "bring it home." 
I chose the TIC-TAC-TOE grid line that asks for "CHARM, IMAGE & WASHI TAPE." My charm is the tiny key on my toolbox, and I used the Washi tape like a ribbon running horizontally under my sentiments.
Now it's your turn to have a go at the Outlawz Greetings Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week and create something to link up with us.
