My Besties Aussie Challenge Dreaming with Making Faces image

What an absolute privilege to be asked to guest design at My Besties Aussie Challenge Blog!   

If you have a bit of time you should really check out the Design Team's creations every two weeks they showcase fabulous inspirations! Here is the link to the challenge and their work!

I need to share with you something else that impacts me about working with ladies/men that make cards around the world.. we might not "speak" the same first language but our cards speak volumes that we all understand.   And that is we like to create and share our passion.  I love the encouragement i get from the My Besties community..they have been so kind.

This card was created for the My Besties Aussie team challenge theme that is to use 2 Laces and flowers.  Easy Peasy?
This image is so adorable and is Making Faces #237 found here.  She looks like she is dreaming or "thinking of you".  I have used one set of dies on this card from Cheery Lynn..it's the set of doily hearts. The leaf die is from Noor/Joy Crafts (i think).   I have recycled the packing paper from a Prima package (behind the image) and then i also recycled a corrugated box behind that.  The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
