Criss Cross Card for challenges

Hi all, hope you are enjoying your week so far.... Well the excitement from the opening of the new Crafting with Dragonflies blog has subsided just a little, long enough for me to create some new cards. Now this is a little out of the ordinary for me, this is a criss cross card, and I got my inspiration from Bev Rochester click here for the you tube inspirations
I have been hording this amazing paper pack 8' x 8 " from graphics 45 for ages now, and thought it was high time I used some of it....just tooo precious, and here in Australia extremely expensive...maybe that's why, lol. 
I love Sunflowers don't you? so bright , happy and cheery...
I pared it with the beautiful dark reds, and gold patterns, and made a double sided pull out tag and a large bow...finshed it's a substantial 15 x 15 cm .
The punches for the flowers are all from EK success, top note die.
Blessings Hilde
