Tilda Celebrates Love & a Criss Cross Card

I hope every one enjoyed their first week of 2012 and that it was filled with creativity!
Well now I tried something a little different, my very FIRST Criss Cross card. OMG it was so fun and sooooo easy. It features the delightful Miss Tilda which I colored using my Copic Markers. The paper is by K&Co from years past. I'm trying to use up my old paper before diving into my new. Ya lets see how long that lasts. HA! I used some really pretty pink and red rosette ribbon also from old stash. The criss cross punch is by Martha Stewart. The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps and the frame is a Spellbinders die. Flowers are Marianne's Designs as well as some of the flourishes. I also have Magnolia flourishes. The bling flourishes and white pearls are by Recollections. The heart I cut with my Cricut and I attached an adorable cupid to my hand dyed seam binding. I also dabbed Liquid Pearls here and there, I find that this is a nice touch. I should have added another Magnolia stamp to the insert but given the fact that I have so many other projects that I can't wait to get too I didn't have the time. Next time....
Thank you so much for visiting me
Hugs and much love Bonnie

Wow this is gorgeous Bonnie. The colours are gorgeous and so beautifully embellished. I used to do Cross stitch before I found cardmaking and blogging. Dont have time for both nowadays!

Oh Bonnie, this is so romantic and cute! Love the bright colors, and Tilda is georgeusly colored.
I love the pink rosette, the pearls, ribbons, swirls, and so on. :p Its perfectly decorated to its shape. I always have trouble embellishing when I do something other than the regular 6x6.

These papers are beautiful, but listen here, sweetie: If you dont use your new stuff now, and save it for later like I do, then it becomes old stuff to, and then you will have new stuff you`d rather use! So go ahead and use that wich tempts you. ;)

Lots of hugs, Anne.
