Just Magnolia special monthly challenge - Criss cross card

Good morning everyone I will keep this short today as I have a cold and am feeling sorry for myself 'cough cough' lol...well my card today is for this months special challenge for Just Magnolia, and we chose this month to make a criss cross card...I love these but this is the first one I have made properly if you know what I mean...I have used crossed paper on a card so it looks like one but this is my first proper one...I have no idea who the grey patterned vellum is by but my Magnolia is one of the new Wedding Collection and its called Bride and Bridesmaid, I bought this at Bunny Zoe's Crafts

its coloured with distress inks and I glittered her veil and their shoes...the insert is made from grey pearlised card and the corners and ribbon are from my stash...I hope you like it and hop on over to Just Magnolia when you get time as their is a link to a tutorial for the criss cross card and the rest of the DT have some amazing creations too...enjoy the rest of your Friday everyone and watch out for any flying germs
