Look It Is Not a Christmas Card

I have seen so many cards made with this paper and stamp set, and I just had to try one of my own. I also have never made a criss cross card so I thought I would try my hand at that. All in all I think things turned out pretty darn good!!!!!!!
I did make this card with some one in mind, don't do that very often. my FIL has been having some health problems and My DH had to make a spur of the moment trip back home to see him we could have ether drove with the kids and wanted to kill our selves by the time we got there or Just have Marty fly home (DH) thank good we found a great deal on a no notice plane ticket. the only down side to that is his dad has only met one of our children, so I hope when we have more time we can make it there for a visit!!!!
And the good news of all of this is his dad is doing much better and is home now
I made this card to let him and his wife know that I am thinking about them and sorry that I could not make the trip with Marty! this car is fitting they are both horse people they have several of there own horses and they buy and sell at action many times a year!!!!!
about the card!
I got the idea for the cute little scrolls from the twisted chick herself (thank you)
the paper is outlaw really rust and close to cocoa and confetti cream.
I got the ribbon at Walmart and the sweet little rhinestone's at a scrapbook store where my mom lives. All of the images are stamped in close to cocoa craft ink and clear embossed along with the green DP I distressed the edges and the sponged all the side!!!! TFL
please tell me what you think!!!!
