"Anything Goes" using Art Impressions Golden Oldies Jump In

There's a story behind today's card.  This is a thank you card for our great friend, John.  He is what is considered a "snowbird", since he lives in Florida in the winter.  Last month he kindly let all three of us stay at his home for 10 days.  He took us everywhere to also look at condos, since my husband would also like to escape the snowy winters.  We will again be visiting Florida this month and will stay with him again, so we are going to send him some gift cards.  Anyways, Seven Springs is the condo community and I thought this card would make him smile.  On to the card.  I used the Art Impressions "Golden Oldies Jump In" stamp.  I've had it on my desk for quite a while and decided to color it up with my copics.  I am entering this card to the "Anything Goes" challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  The random draw winner gets a $50 gift voucher to the store.  For me that would be just a starting point, since there are several new items I just have to have!  I also am submitting this to the "Anything Goes" challenge at One Crazy Stamper.  The challenge runs all month long, so you have plenty of time to enter a card.

The sentiment was done on my computer, so I could customize it.  I also added Glossy Accents to the goggles, so there is a little bit of a glare on the pic.  I did a standard A2 card, but the image is large, so it took up most of the card.
