Sketch Saturday #345 - Dreaming of warmer climes

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are pleased to be sponsored by
Sami Stamps

My delightful and beautiful Goddaughter is travelling to Australia having "done Europe" last year.   She also celebrates a birthday and I chose this lovely image called "Nadia Daydreaming" from Mo Manning which you can find here for a card for her.   I added some pictures of Australia to Nadia's magazine. 
I have, in my usual style, flipped the sketch.  I sometimes think that my brain sees things as if through a mirror as I rarely manage to get the sketch elements the right way round for my cards. 
I love these "Something for All Seasons" papers from Authentique.   My birthday sentiment and the frame for it are by Papertrey Ink (I'm not sure which set my Bon Voyage sentiment is from) and the leaves on my flowers are from a Marianne die.  
Why not scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us. We'd love to see you join in!
Given that whilst we Brits are freezing my Goddaughter is going to be  experiencing (and Nadia on my card is daydreaming) of fabulous winter warmth and sunshine down under, I am entering my card into the following challenges and I hope to get away with it!
