I used a layout from a card made by my friend Gayle Enouen; I loved her card so used her "sketch" and changed the colors, DSP, added a little more cork,... do you know that drill? : )
I really like the Sweet Sorbet paper and accessories. I'm going to miss it! Thanks, Gayle, for the layout and inspiration!

I most always design my own cards from scratch but do you sometimes see something you like "as is" and don't want to change it? That's what happened here: this one I changed very little from the original by Erica Cerwin. I loved the colors she used; I was also wanting to use my See Ya Later Sale-A-Bration set so I made this one almost like hers!
I did change the banner underneath the alligator sentiment; I used two little banners punched from the Sweet Sorbet DSP with the Bitty Banner Punch. Thanks, Erica, for the inspiration for this fun card!
