Sweet Stamps Challenge 33 - Criss Cross Card

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to make a Criss Cross Card, you can view a tutorial on Split Coast Stampers.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.
 

I used several Cheery Lynn Designs Eccentric Circles and Dotted Swiss on the diagonal panels on the front of the card.  I used my Nellie's Oval Multi Frame dies for the oval panels, adding some white Viva Decor Pearl pen accents to the scallops.  I used my Spots embossing folder for the white panel behind the horse and behind the sentiment.  I stamped the Carousel Horse and the Taking a Moment sentiment with Memento ink onto Cryogen paper.  I colored the horse with my Copic markers.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
