Let's Bring on Spring

This is my second post for today, you lucky people.
We have a new challenge starting today over at Corrosive Challenges and our theme is:
Spring Fling
Our sponsor for this challenge is Delicious Doodles and the winner will receive 4 free digis.

I decided to create a criss cross card, my first ever.

I used this fab image of some lilies which I fell in love with.  I coloured it with promarkers and then cut it out and mounted it onto a circle.  Th circle has been edged in some green lace.  The papers are from a spring paper pack that I have had for ages.
I made a pull out insert using a stamp verse that I have from Imagination Crafts.
Here are a couple more pictures.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Brown Sugar - Flowers
Jellypark - Pretty pastels
Love to Create - Pastel colours
Digital Tuesday - Spring colours
Simon Says - Anything goes
Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes with ribbon
Disdigidesigns - Flower frenzy
OSAAT - Spring
Stamp N Doodle - Easter or spring
Pan Pastel - Anything goes

I was over at Penny's and saw your card in our little boxes and had to come look! I've been wanting to stop by your blog. Your card is beautiful, Mags. VERY beautiful! Your first criss-cross is so inspiring I think I'd like to give one a go....someday! LOL I don't think I could make the inside so lovely as yours. The whole card turned out so well, your coloring is perfection! So glad I finally came by to see you! I admire your work so much. Hugs for you, Mags!
