ABC Challenge: O is for...

Hi friends,
Today I'm sharing a card for this week's challenge at The ABC Challenge. The featured letter is "O" as in "Ovals."
Here's my card:
I used my Beaded Ovals Nesties for the challenge. I wove sheer ribbon through the holes & added pearls all around to frame that gorgeous cross. The cross was made with the Nesties Cross Collection & it is spectacular! I cut it out in ivory pearlescent cardstock & it is a thing of beauty. The embossing & detail is amazing! Can you tell I'm in luuuv?! Hee! Hee! I used 3 of the crosses & layered them with foam tape. I've had this die for such a long time & I don't know if I've ever used it :( To continue with the neglect, I also used papers from the La Boutique Collection from K&Company. I've had these papers forever- I don't think they even print this anymore! :( I do have one little problem with this card. I don't know anyone getting married so I have no one to give it to! Oh well, I'll add it to my stash o' cards & I'll have one ready for when someone ties the knot :)

The letter "O" is brought to you by
