Lattice Cross - Act 21 SSS

Update - I found the blogger that was the inspiration for this cross.  It's Lauri Seago @ A Stampers' Perspective.  Her original card is HERE.  Check her out!

Wow, this week has been a blur for me! I don't know where the week went but here we are, time for another addition of the Stamping Stage! Stacey has an interesting color combo for us this week, almost monochromatic. I wasn't sure what direction the colors would take me. Initially I thought St. Patrick's Day card, but I don't have any stamps! That's when I turned to my Big Shot dies.I've had the Lattice Die for a while, but haven't used it much. I remember seeing this cross while blurfing, quite some time ago. Sorry I can't tell you where....I usually keep better track of these things. It's a great idea, though! It could make a great first communion card, too. Geez, the only stamping here is the sentiment from Well Scripted! Can't get much more simple, huh?So, now that you've seen my offering. Check out the other gals, too.
