First Criss Cross Card

So the other day I was commenting on some DT responsibilities and I came across a beautiful criss cross card. I got inspired, popped over to You Tube and watched a tutorial, and waaaaa laaaaa... here is my criss cross card!  And just in case you havent noticed... Psssst, come closer.... I love pink and green!!!
I used my current FAVORITE Tilda
and surrounded her with lovely layers
and clusters of Prima flowers and swirls.

Full frontal view of my criss cross card.

Angel view so you can see the dimention of the flowers.

This is the pull out card for your personal journeling message
to the Mother of the Year!

The pull tab is the Mother of the Year popped up tab.

This is how it looks with the journeling card pulled out.

I will be entering the following challenges: Lets Get Cute Sunday Spring Shades Friday Spring Summer Colors Thursday Mothers Day Thursday Color Throwdown Wednesday
