Tilda Criss-Cross Card + Challenges

Closed Criss-Cross Card

Take out the flower spray as a keepsake

Undo the Bow

The Inside

The Message

Hi Girls, I know there's a wad of piccie's but I just had to show this card in all it's elements. It's my first Criss Cross card, and I followed the fab tutorial over at Just Magnolia by the lovely Janette. This card is for the Monthly Special Challenge. Go take a look at the DT creations if you are in need of inspirations. It's there in volumes.

My card started out for the new Totally Tilda Challenge Blog which has it's Debut this month, with the theme of Chocolate, the challenge will run the whole month and then fortnightly there after. It's founder is Susie Sugar from Die Cut Dreams and we all know that Susie is fanatical about her baby (Tilda) she just adores her. The new DT have created the most wonderful cards, if you are a fan of Tilda (like me) then you surely have to pay a visit and see their wonderful creations.

I must say I thoroughly enjoyed making this card with all it's elements and I'm pleased with the final result. The full recipe is below this post. Well I think that's it for posting today, but I will be popping in to see a few friends here on blogger, so until the next time, take care and enjoy the remainder of your weekend. Bye For Now - Suzi x
