A Criss Cross card

I thought I would have a go at making a Criss cross card today, this was the Just Magnolia special monthly challenge. Its too late to enter their challenge but I wanted to have a go at one anyway.
I have used papers from my Piece of Cake 6 x 6 paper pad from Dovecraft and brown paper and card.
I don't know why but I am suddenly liking these two colours together and I have made quite a few cards using the same colours and papers in the last week.
The image is a Magnolia stamp coloured in with Promarkers. I have stuck onto oval and scalloped oval with 3d foam pads to raise off the card. The brown spotty ribbon was from a reel I bought at WS Designs at the Newbury craft show.
The punch I have used is a Martha Stewart punch called Layered Arches. The flowers have been made with my Marianne Design flower dies with pearls stuck in the middle and the swirls are from a Marianne Design die too.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
Paper Sundaes Lots of layers
The pink elephant Pocket cards
Just Magnolia Recipe
Totally Papercrafts Swirls and pearls
