Abc Challenge X - Criss Cross Card.

My second post for today is to let you know that over at 

The Abc  Challenge

We are now up to the letter X so we would love to see you make a Criss Cross Card.  If you pop over to Abc then you will find a fabulous tutorial from the lovely Julie P.   So no excuses, if you haven't tried one of these shapes then now is the time.  I love making them.

For my card I've used Prima's Botanical paper pad.  I needed to not make this too Girly as the friend who is receiving it, so I've kept it quite simple but I think effective.  I will put a list of ingredients used at the bottom of my post just in case you'd like to know what I've used.

Our Sponsor this week is
