Imagine That! Beach Blanket Girl Card

This card was created for the monthly progressive challenge over at Imagine That! Digis. I love getting a free set just for participating each month!
This month's set is a great theme for August. I happen to be heading to the beach in South Carolina next week, and this digi stamp set is perfect for getting me in the mood for some fun in the sand and waves. Imagine That! Digis provided colored stamps as well as outlines to color in myself. I chose the colored versions of these stamps because I loved the orange, pink, yellow and teal they used. I imported the stamps into my Silhouette Design Studio software, sized everything how I wanted it, did a trace on the shapes I wanted to cut out and then print and cut everything I needed for the card front. I also did a print and cut of the sentiment for the inside of the card and used Spellbinders Labels 22 for the orange mat behind the sentiment. I used the background Imagine That! Digis provided and just added a digital stamp sentiment to the top right.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
