Selma and Gladys ~ Bathing Beauties!

This card is for a Mystery Swap on SCS. A group of us are doing a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess. This swap was created by Forest Ranger—Jeanette and we are now in our second cycle--and this is the 23rd card I have made for this ongoing swap.  Carol chose this image and will swap the cards--then send us the next image, provided by Melina! I can't wait to get the swap cards back to see how everyone else used the same image. And then we get to do it all again!!!!

The image and the additional sentiments just crack me up!   I have been smiling and even laughing out loud most of the time I was working on this card. I hope Carol as well as the others in the swap like it also.   And--I know Tami will love the flip-flop brads!

I wanted to use all three of the sentiments--so one also went inside.
