Mucha Influence Criss-Cross

This week's challenge #143 on The Paper Shelter's challenge blog is called All Wrapped Up. I'm no longer in the mood for cold weather (It's constantly pouring down the rain here and is very windy too, which I wish would go away as I don't like it!) so I opted to make a criss-cross card which is kind of wrapped up across itself and wraps the main image up too. Get where I'm coming from? I also used the gorgeous colour combo from Color Throwdown's Challenge #277.


And here's my card all wrapped up...
