Surfer Birthday Girl card (Cute as a Button image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have used a gorgeous image from Cute as a Button for this card. I cut the image out just keeping the girl and the ocean then added it to the teal and cloud background. I used a sunburst stencil and texture paste to create the background.
