Embellishment rampage.. :-)

The title scared you Huh.. Well I seriously think I went overboard in this one.. I could have kept it simple but didn't feel like applying the KISSing method today.. LOL

I made a criss-cross card today... been itching to try it out for ages but something or the other always cropped up and I could not do it..

Well have a look first and then I'll prattle some more..

I painfully sat down and stuck the rhinestones and the pearls and then with great trepidation tied the ribbon.. The bow looks OK I think.. what say guys??
