What a fun card! Perfect for a hot summer day on the east coast (t's just as hot here in southern NJ as it is in PA!)! I love your inspiration from Anita's fun card...great use of white space and fun polka dot paper!

Adorable surfer image and card!

Pia S said...

Spots and layout are clearly inspired by the Muse case card, but I think you've managed to create a very different style, so youthful and cool!

Very cute and a nice turn on the Muse sample. Also, I thank you for leading me to Some Odd Girl digital stamps. I'd never seen the site and am glad to find it. :-D
