:: Birthday Sundaes Challenge # 26: Criss-Cross Card! ::


What a week I've had!  The first week of school been utterly exhausting!  I am so glad that I have the weekend to relax and make some cards! (That and shop for some back to school clothing bargains!)

But first!...  


Birthday Sundaes challenge #26 is finally here! 

I couldn't wait to create this challenge!  I had a lot of fun with it, using My Favourite Things "My Balloon" stamp (designed by Heather Ellis) and My Minds Eye "LimeTwist" 6x6 paper pad, Bazzil Basics "Candy Apple" cardstock, X-press It Blending copic paper, Signo Board White Gel Pen, Ranger Distress ink in "Pumice Stone", Ranger Liquid Pearls, Ranger Stickles in "Lime Green", The Twinery twine (in "Honeydew"), Copics, Primsacolour pencil crayons, Hero Arts "Wonderful Birthday" clear stamp set (sentiment) and.... I think that's all! S:o) 

Unfortunately, I discovered a bit of disaster after I took the pictures for my blog post... I adhered the cloud patterned background upside down!  I really don't know what I was thinking when I did this, but obviously I wasn't paying attention! 

This week, Ashley joins us at Birthday Sundaes with her creation HERE
Once again the DT ladies have designed some amazing cards...
I am awed by each and every one of them...


Why not try to create your own criss-cross card and post it to the Birthday Sundaes challenge blog!
Check out the tutorial from Beate Johns at the Splitcoast Stampers website HERE!

I look forward to seeing what you create!

These papers are great! Also, I never even noticed the clouds until I read about it, it's really not noticeable :)

This is such a fun card. I have yet to try one of these.
Your card is perfect as usual...even with the upside down clouds, which no one would have noticed if you didn't point it out, lol.
I love every single one of your awesome cards.
