Just Magnolia Challenge - Criss-Cross Card

Firstly, I'd like to wish a very Happy 4th of July to all of my American blogging friends - I hope you all have a safe and happy celebration!

In between swimming, drinking G&Ts, kids and enjoying the sunshine I have put together this criss-cross card for the Just Magnolia challenge this week!  I haven't done one of these before and I followed Jeanette's fabulous tutorial over on the challenge blog.  I used this gorgeous Ballerina Tilda (kindly borrowed from my friend) and coloured her with copics.  She was an absolute dream to colour in.  Her tiara is covered with stickles although the angle of the camera didn't pick up the sparkle too well unfortunately.  The dp is from the Luxury Stack by DCWV (beautiful pearlised papers) and I used the MS punch for the borders.  Ribbon, tulles and flowers are all from stash.  I will also enter this in at Totally Papercrafts where their challenge is 'One for the Girls'.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I need to do a bit of catch up on my blogging - I'm a little behind but it's so hard to be inside when the weather outside is absolutely gorgeous!  This week is set to be a scorcher with temps rising to 34oc with humidex expected to hit 42oc!!!! WOW!!!

I appreciate every comment you leave so thank you very much for taking the time!  Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

Hugs,
Danielle x
