Hope for summer!

Good Morning!  I hope this Saturday finds you fit and well and enjoying some sunshine somewhere.....
My card today is a really simple affair - I was playing around with my Gelatos again and just did a few swipes of the two blues and thought how perfect it would be as a background to the 'Technique Tuesday' clear stamp called "Big Wish" available here at Can You Digi It.
I simply matted the stamped image onto some white cardstock and embossed a line frame around it, repeating that on the main cardstock background, added some appropriately striped nautical-feel backing card and a simple metal charm. 



So very simple and fresh looking - I'm thinking it would look good in a white frame in a seaside cottage somewhere...........................



I would like to enter this into the following challenges -

Wow. That's totally fabulous! Your clean design keeps the emphasis on that great silhouette!

Sort of timely too. It's supposed to get into the mid 80s tomorrow.
