Whimsy and Stars

I know many are back to school already, but we still have two weeks left. We are trying to squeeze all the remaining fun out of summer that we can. I love this little Amelie to the Beach image, she is so sweet. She is available in the Whimsy and Stars Etsy shop. There are lots of fall images, too, if you are feeling "over" with summer!

I've used the sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge #172 for this one. There is a twist with the sketch this week, use die cuts. The background paper has lots of glittery goodness on it, so this one is bright and cheerful.
