Criss Cross Wedding Card

I'm useless at measuring and 'neat' just isn't me at but when I saw the tutorial for these Criss Cross cards over on the Just Magnolia blog, I foolishly thought " I can do that". The lady made it look soooooooo easy but I'm a total numpty when it comes to measuring and this card took me HOURS! Not the colouring or the embellishments etc - just cutting the blinking card and doing the matting and layering!! Anyway enough of me moaning, back to the card which is for a friend who is getting married soon and is seriously  into cute and you don't get much cuter than Tilda. I've used the colour scheme she is having for her wedding

I've coloured the images with promarkers and added some glitter to Tilda's veil and the lace on her dress. The lace, ribbon and gems are from my stash. I've used tapestry card for the white panels, ooooh I love this stuff, so so pretty but hard to get a decent pic.

The tag inside is stamped with one of my favourite sentiments from Elusive Images, here's another pic to show the inside

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Just Magnolia: Criss Cross Card
Sentimental Sundays: Celebrations
Alphabet Challenge : J is for Jewels

Thanks for looking
