Criss Cross Card

Hi
I want to share a card I made last night. I'm entering this card into the Birthday Sundaes challenge #26 and Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenges. The Birthday Sundaes' blog has a link to help you make one of these cards. It's called a criss cross card. It was pretty easy and it's fun to make different types of cards. Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge is a cricut-less one. You have to use the colors purple,orange,green,and black. I was kind of nervous about not using my cricut, but after seeing the challenge for Birthday Sundaes, I just combined the requirements. The patterned paper is from a stack I bought last year from Joanns. I used some cardstock from my stash for the card base and a Martha Stewart punch to create a band around the card. The cute scallop and circle is from Emma as is the sentiment. The ribbon is from Joanns. I had so much fun making this. Thanks for stopping by:)
