My First Criss Cross Pocket Card

Hello peeps! It's been a while since I did a Magnolia card and so thought I'd join in with the challenge over at Just Magnolia, which is to make a Criss Cross Pocket Card, there's a fab tutorial on how to make it here. I followed the tutorial as this is the first card of this sort I've made. I have to admit it took a little while to make getting measurements right (I didn't do exactly the same size as on the tutorial) but I am pleased with the end result ;)

I've coloured Tilda with Promarkers, The sentiment is a Rachelle Anne Miller one from Stampavie, papers are from Papermania, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls are from Quixotic and finally the lace and ribbon are from my stash.

Well that's all for today, hope you're enjoying the sunshine!
