Just Rite Friday Challenge #106 Color Inspiration

Oh dear I have really been neglecting my blog recently just saw that my last post was almost 2 months ago .  My SIL was visiting with us from Aug.15 to Sept. 21 so I was playing the hostess and tour guide while she was here . We did quite a bit of travelling around Nova Scotia taking in Cape Breton, Halifax area and some of the Southern Shore . I really enjoyed having her . Now since my house is bacd in order I have spent a few days playing in my favorite spot. Here's a card I did for the the challenge this week over at Just Rite stamps . I've seen several criss cross cards while browsing various blogs so decided to try one for this challenge.  Paper used was from the Prima collection Fairy Flora , stamp from JR Elegant Frames(one of my favorites) stamped in CTMH Pansy ink and then layered on orange,violet and lavender c/s .   The flower I make freehand from a tutorial I saw on You Tube . I used a velcro dot to hold the criss cross together and then wrapped sheer ribbon around the card and tied with a bow . The ribbon can be slipped off to open the card.
