Criss Cross Card

Hello everyone,  I hope you are all well and looking forward to your weekend ahead.  I have my sweet Grandsons coming tomorrow for a  sleepover, so I won't get much crafting done over the weekend, but I'll have a great time with them as always.

Anyway,  I haven't made a Criss Cross card in such a long time so when I saw the challenge over at Tomic I knew I had to make one. I've used Tilda Teddy-Love as my image from the Princes & Princesses collection and coloured her with Copics and Derwent artist pencils. I've listed all my ingredients below this post if you want to know the many ingredients used.  lol 

I haven't used a sentiment or words as yet because I'm not sure who will receive this card. 

The following challenges gave me inspiration this week for this creation. They are:

TOMIC Challenge:  Make a Criss Cross Card and use an image from Princes & Princesses collection 2012 or any stamp from the previous Prince & Princesses collection.

Just Magnolia Challenge:  Have the theme of Lovely Lace this week and wait for it !!!!  they are also having a Design Team Call which I would love to be a part of so I'm taking a deep breath and entering.

Before I go I would like to say a big Hello and Welcome to my new followers, I hope you get a little inspiration from my projects and enjoy your visits with me.
