Get your Sun Glasses...

Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world. ~Ada Louise Huxtable

This is Bright!! I used my new Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper and a Super sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil...don't you just love those chubby baby legs and that adorable face???!?!?!

I used Mercy's Sketch for the layout of the card and just added a punched border and a simple bow tied with a button. I didn't want to get Too fancy so it will work for a boy, since I didn't put the little swimsuit top on to make it a girl. The water is shiny from Diamond Glaze and I added a touch of Stickles to the ball and tube.
For the inside I used my Super versatile Swirly Greetings from Elzybells with a little star in between the words (because I stamped the first ones too far over ;) LOL)...
