Summer Fun Card

Don't we all buy paper* that we like and think..."Why do I really need this?"   I did that just the other day but found a use for it when making a card for Mo's Digital Challenge  this week. Peggy put together a fun sketch for us to follow. You can flip it, rotate it... whatever!! Just as long as the main elements obviously are similar to this sketch. 
I chose to use Mo's image Pool Party which by the way was a freebie on  PCP for her group. I colored the image with pencils and OMS and Jelli-Ink Pens and added stickles to her cap, arm floats, and flip flops. Color inspiration came from the new paper that I bought for no reason. Colored the edge of circle with ink after I cut her out. Used green CS for base card layered with blue CS embossed with Fiskars ocean waves texture plate. Layered this with ribbon, strip cut from that patterned paper  that I bought, and a strip of Pink CS. Attached image and added a shell that I inked with pink.
Thought this would make a great card for someone headed for a beach vacation to wish them a fun time.
