My Besties "Making Faces" Garden Girl with a Fancy Fold card

I am always inspired by what i see.  What's that game?  Pictionary?   Or remember when someone would draw a squiggly line and you had to make something with it?  That's how i feel about making cards and using images.  I see more than just an image, i "see" what i can do with it besides coloring it and placing it on a card..it challenges me to do something different every time. 

So what was my "squiggle" line.. well, the image and a fancy fold card and figuring out "how" i wanted to put the two together.

If you have been following me, you might know i fussy cut most of my images.  Well, this image with the curly lines was a bit harder and challenging for me to cut out..some times i just cut the little curly bits off, however, this one needed the strawberry vines..i think..so i intricately cut them out and added more color so i had a bit more room to cut too. :)

So here is my card using My Besties "Making Faces" Garden Girl, the card is open:
