Surf's Up - All Dressed Up


Today marks a new challenge at All Dressed Up Challenge Blog and my choice of digis to use is Surf's Up.  I have a grandson who is having a birthday shortly and he's really into sharks.  Me, not so much and I'd be scared witless if I ever saw a real one.  No surfing for me....
I'm not sure if I'm happy with this card or not... I smooshed Tim Holt's Tumbled glass and Stormy Sky for the background.  I think I'm unsure because it seems busier than my normal style but regardless, the birthday boy will love it.  He's probably expecting a shark tooth inside but no, it will be some money and he'll probably buy himself a big box of Pokemon cards.
The theme at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog  is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image.  If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan PageFacebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!
