You Look Fabulous

I love the Art Impression stamps. My one regret is that they make some stamps exclusively for stores over in America that I can't source. Always enjoy a bit of humour and have a number of the girlfriend stamps.
I finally got my hands on the second lady in her swimmers so could make a card with the two of them. Her we go:

I did plan to try making this a one layer card, no bling or extra panels but.....yes I forgot about the sentiments placement. 
This time I knew what sentiments I wanted to use but didn't think about that when I stamped the ladies. If I had stamped them just that little bit closer together, but I was thinking of personal space you know, don't stand in my space!!! Anyway I ended up cutting speech bubbles and having to resize slightly to fit and they turned out ok. Then I needed to colour the speech bubbles slightly as they were a different white to the white of the card and when I took the photo it stood out like dirty linen.

A light coat of blue fixed that and I actually felt it improved the card as well. All colouring was with copics. I just love the idea of two old friends catching up at the beach and telling it as it is. So simple.

thought I would enter this in :
