My Besties Uk Challenge - Anything Goes + Curls

Hello Fellow Crafters,
I am so happy I get to be a part of this fabulously talented Team and share.

It is time to start My Besties UK new bi-weekly challenge today, Monday, November 17th through Sunday, November 30th.  THEME:Project with Anything Goes or a project with  Curls/anything with curls.

You may enter your My Besties cards up to 3 times or once without. Please go by the My Besties UK Blog and check out the great digi prizes for this challenge along with the great designs and inspiration by the Design Team.

Here is my Anything Goes project with a criss-cross card I made to showcase My Besties digital image IMG443. She is so adorable. I chose her because of all the pretty little curls in her hair. I did something a little different this time when I colored her face. I blended some pink Prismacolor pencil over my Spectrum Noir on her cheeks and on the picture it looks funny but in person they look normally fine. Go figure...

Since I have learned to make criss-cross cards I love playing with them. There are so many different detailed touches you can give them. Here is a Youtube video made by a gracious crafter "From My Art Lab" who made this great and easy to follow video that shows you how to make a criss-cross card.  I am sure once you will get the foundation of it you will let your creative imagination take you from there.

When I took this picture I forgot to take a picture of the otherside of the Just Because where I added a side pocket to place a tag to be used as a bookmark. But you can see it as I took the picture with it inside, below.
