ABC challenge DT card - X for X'ing

Good day everyone, This is my second post of the day, please scroll down if you want to see my other post

We have a new challenge at ABCOur challenge this time is...

'X for... X'ing '

We'd like to see anything with Criss-Cross card, or maybe an envelope or anything else with some crossing on it!!!

For my DT card I decided to go with a Criss Cross card, you can find a great tutorial here.  My papers are from last year's collection from Melissa Frances called Deck the Halls.  Spellinders used are Fancy Tags, Standard Circle, Picot Edge Circle and Layered Poinsettia for the flowers.

Stamp: Tilda with a cute lamb from the  New Magnolia Little Christmas collection and colored with copics.  I added pearls drops around my image with Viva decor Pearl Pen in Iced White.

For my flowers we cannot see the shimmer on the photo but i love how they turned out.  They are made using Spellbinder's layered poinsettia die,  cut out on a 90 lbs watercolor paper.  I then sprayed them with Apple Red Glimmer Mist and inked the edges with Aged Mahogany distress inks.  When dry I applied lots of Glass Glitter.  For the green leafs I used Olive Vine Glimmer mist and Peeled Paint distress ink to for the edges

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful In2Stamps
