Happy Birthday Samm (and my first criss-cross card all in one!)

One of my new SBS-8 sisters, Samm, is running a challenge on her blog. To enter, you make a new birthday card (in honor of her birthday) and post it on your blog. Below is my card. Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Samm!

This card is also my first attempt at a criss-cross card, and I'm happy with the way it turned out. I was inspired by the ones on Leonie's blog and Cherylann's blog (as well as an encouraging email from Leonie). Thanks for the inspiration, ladies! If you're interested in making one, Beate has an easy-to-follow tutorial here. Enjoy!
