Criss Cross Tilda...



I finally got to do a bit of crafting yesterday, the kids were home sick from school with the flu for two days, not fun! We're all better now so yay, a card-making I will go...lol. I cannot remember the last time I made a criss cross card so when I saw the TOMIC challenge I was happy to have a go, and it was so fun. Only sad part is as the lovely Mel pointed out I missed the part of Princes and Princesses...lmao!
This is my first time using this Tilda, I've always loved her but didn't like that fact that her arrangement had candy canes and could only be used at Christmas! So I decided to give her a bouquet of flowers using flowersoft. I coloured her with copics. The papers are all K & Company. I decided to stamp a sympathy message inside. The beautiful flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts. I am entering Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Ribbon or Twine, The Pink Elephant - Flowers, Catered Crop - Brads,Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Pearls/Lace
