Rocking Horse Criss Cross

After the fight I had with de-icing the car yesterday morning I thought I would pop back to winter today with a Criss Cross card.  I must try and remember to make these more often, they are such fun to make.

The stamp is Rocking Horse by Tina Wenke for Stampavie.  I love this image.  The pull out insert was very simply decorated by stamping the image again in Walnut Stain distress ink and I used one of the gorgeous sentiment stamps from the Merry Christmas sentiments set also by Tina Wenke.  I die cut the image with a Go-Kreate Frames Frilly 10

The ribbon, flowers and berries are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the little brad on the insert tab.
That’s it from me today, another short and sweet post from me.  I have so much to do I am going to meet up with myself coming backwards lol. 
hugs

  21. Well Bev this is another success. Its hard not to make a lovely card with the Stampavie range though isn't it, they are so good they just seem to inspire beautiful cards.
    By the way, if you see yourself on the way back, remember to tell you to take a break! lol..
    Hope you manage to relax over Christmas. Same to everyone!
    All the best Linda
