SUMMER - sand- sun- beach- vacation

I wanted to get this card posted since I had it done, but just couldn't figure out how to post it to a Facebook page, but thanks to Christine I'm hoping that I get this done.  This adorable image was a freebie that I got from Craftin' Desert Diva and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  For the background, I wanted it to look like a pool, so I took a piece of white paper and put my Distress inks on my craft sheet and sprayed them with water and then ran the paper through them.  I then heated it with my heat gun.  And repeated it several times until the page was covered with ink.  I like the variation of the colors and it was quick and easy.  I added Glossy Accents to the sun glasses.
