Summer Fun!

Good Morning Everyone, WOW its Thursday already, this week has just flown by.......I wanted to share a card with you that I made with this cute NEW image by Inky Impressions Water LiLi. Oh my goodness I just love this cutie and she was soooo fun to color and to paper piece!!! She makes a perfect summer creation!!! Its so funny because that old old song about the polka dotted bikini gave me inspiration to make this card in polka dots and yellow....LOL!!! Whatever it takes for inspiration right????
