Beach Bums

I made this card for our nanny from the kids.  She is the best thing that has happened to us and my kids had the best summer with her.  She certainly relieved us of much guilt now that my husband and I are both working full-time.  The kids spent lots of time swimming over the summer with her so these cute digis by Whimsie Doodles were perfect for a card for her!

I popped "Leah" up with foam adhesive and added 
some Glossy Accents to the goggles. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
