I'm too cool for the pool....

I wanted to make a card for my 14 yr old nephew because I love him to pieces and because he absolutely loves my cards. He is sooo sweet b/c yesterday we were talking and he says Auntie, why don't you sell your cards? They are awesome. *blush* see, I told you he was sweet!
Anyway, so why this card? Well, we had a pool party for my 5 yr old daughter and he came but fully clothed with no intention of partaking in the pool & I just thought it was cute b/c he's 14 and you know..too cool for that. I hope he likes it. I colored this awesome Simply Betty Stamp - Miller with a touch of a sunburn - not my intention but when trying out different skin tones oopsies are bound to happen & sometimes oopsies just come together in a card for me!
This card is also for The Burtonesque Dolls challenge Burton Boys. I think these Simply Betty stamps are perfect for these challenges! Also, I hope I'm not being uncool in also submitting this card as my 2nd guess for the NEW My Kids Emo line - if you saw my post below you'll see Simply Betty Stamps is having a contest to guess the theme in order to win all 6 new Emos. I'm DYING to see them and fortunately don't have much longer to wait as sneak peeks begin tomorrow & this contest ends in an hour! It was a really hard challenge I think b/c so far there are only 3 entries. It was really hard for me but after seeing the summer guess and looking at the images again, that made SOOOO much MORE sense than my silly halloween guess!! LOL See, I told you I suck at guessing games...hopefully my card making skills are better....

I hope you like! And I hope you don't think bad of me for submitting twice!
