ABC Challenge: X is for...

Xing (crossing) Ribbons!

Hi again friends,
We've got a brand new challenge for ya at ABC Challenges. This week we want to see you cross ribbons.  That could be quite simple or a little more complicated. Guess which one I chose???  ;)
Here's my card:
 I crossed ribbons to create the look of a garden trellis. That wasn't hard to do at all. I just added adhesive to the back edges of my cardstock, cut strips of ribbon, lay them across the cs, & secured them in the back. I used one of my all-time fav stamp sets (now retired) called Wild Rose (SU) along with the matching DP. These are way old, but I still luuuv them :) The GORGEOUS die cut of the leaves with flourishes is a Heartfelt Creation die from the Bella Rose collection. (I am in love with this die!) The sentiment is stamped on a Spellbinder's Ribbon Banners Die.
Here's a closer peek:
The rose centers got a bit of Stickles & a pearl. Of course, I added my obligatory Viva pen work all over it :) (Thanks, Sankari- you've created a monster ;)  Hee!

Head over to the ABC Blog to check out the creative ways my teamies have crossed ribbons and be sure to Linky your crafty creations by Monday night. Oh, the letter X is brought to you by our friends at One Stop Card Crafts and they're offering this fabbie gift voucher to our lucky winner!
For my card, I used this week's sketch at The Sweetest Thing- SSSC123.

Thanks so much for peeking!
