Criss cross layers

Hello lovely people,

I think I shall be clock watching all day today as I look forward to finishing work and heading up to my parents' house...
and then off to the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC tomorrow with my Mum!

For now I have a card to show you for our new challenge at In The Pink where we have the theme of...


We are delighted to be sponsored again by The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher prize
Using lots of layers on my card wasn't too tough for me but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea...

...and talking of tea, I just had to give this stamp another outing, this time for a Mothers' Day card for my Mother-in-Law.

I went with pink again, but it is quite a different shade to the last one!

I went with a really simple pull-out tag with a sentiment circle and ribbon loop.
