Monochrome Criss Cross Card

Hi Everyone

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Creative Craft Cottage 

The theme for the next two weeks is a DT favourite Three of a Kind.  Basically you need to include three of something in your creation.  I included three butterfly die cuts in mine and three Pearl Flower Gems on the tag.

We have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge.  Bugaboo Stamps are the sponsor and the image I chose to work with is called Dandelion Butterflies

For my DT inspiration I made a Criss Cross Card.  I haven't made one of these for a while but I love making these with their little pull out tags.  I made this one 6" Square and the patterned paper is from Trimcraft.  I decorated the edges with Black Lace and cut the butterflies using a Memory Box Die.  To cut and layer the image I used a Go Kreate Circle Die and a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Die.  The Tag is cut using a Tonic Die.  I used a Polka Dot Gross Grain Ribbon, added a Black Satin bow then the Three Black Pearl Flower Gems

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges
