I call this wish I was here

The recipe for this card is 
cartridge is Life is a Beach
and Mickey and Friends
Mickey was cut 4.25 inches
card was cut square
re-cut card to get the green for the palm trees
 and applied leaves with puffy dots
paper on the inside was scrap tie-dye paper cut 4.5 x 4.5 inches

I must tell you that my 6-year old granddaughter actually cut the Mickey with me helping with the Xyron for the gluing!!!

Hope you enjoyed my card and I know wish I was there!!!
