Second posting, on a roll, scroll down for GDT card too!

Hi everyone,
   Me and my big mouth! It's raining. Let's hope the sun comes back tomorrow.

   My card I'm sharing is a criss cross card. I have seen a few of these and they looked awesome so I thought I'd make one to see how it turned out and I'm pleased with it. But to be fair how can you make a bad card with these wonderful LOTV stamps I love em.









Recipe

The main image is LOTV from set 1 "oh so girlie" coloured with promarkers copics and polychromos, then cut out using spellbinders circles.
Magnolia doohickey lace border
Magnolia leaf/swirl
Tim Holtz on the edge butterflies and added pearls
Sentiment die Memory Box, the sentiment stamp is LOTV
Flowers WOC and others
Leaf punch Martha Stewart.

  26. Wow Sue your card is absolutely beautiful hun. Totally stunning. I really love the colours and that floral paper is gorgeous. I am into that burnt orange/red at the moment, it is so pretty. I know what you mean about LOTV stamps, I can't get enough of them at the moment. I have had to be good this weekend as they have a special offer on their stamps (would have to be when im skint!). I love the style of your card also, have not tried a criss cross before. Big hugs and prayers for sunshine, love Clare xxx
