A First Attempt

Morning all, it's not often I'm here on a non Sketch N Stash day is it?
I've been well and truly inspired by a lady who makes the most beautiful 'criss cross' cards and I really wanted to try one, so this is my first attempt (be gentle with me) and I'll be sending it to a dear friend for her birthday later this year.
The lovely papers are Melissa Frances' 'C'est La Vie' I just love the delicate, vintage look of these.

Be prepared to see more of these cards as I think I need lots more practice! I've got such a long way to go before I come anywhere near the standard of the inspiring Teresa Allday (just take a look at her beautiful creations here)
