Surfer Emma



Hi all and happy Thursday afternoon! I have a VERY sweet secret sister out there who sent me this Surfer Emma image that I've been jonesin' to play with. {big smile!...thanks secret sister!} The layout is today's Cute Card Thursday sketch.

The Spellbinders flip flops were cut from white CS, embossed, sponged with Summer Sunrise ink, and popped up with foam tape. I added some orange peel Stickles to Emma's hat, bathing suit, and in the center of every flower. The sentiment is from my OCL Kona set.

Okay, back to work for me. Have an awesome day!
