I am a natural born Texan but had missed out on a right-of-passage experience....tubing down the Guadalupe River...until I was in my later 50s. A friend who is called our "social commander" organized a trip for about 11 of us and we had a blast. I did this as a thank you card for her back in 2010. The background image was a free teacher's template on the internet (I have since lost the link). The sentiment is computer generated and the stamped image is called "Blanche" from Art Impressions (http://www.artimpressions.com/Product.asp?Sku=K1605) . I love their stamps and have about 20 of them on my "wish list". After stamping and coloring with Prismacolor pencils, I cut out the image, attached it to a piece of blue paper and then trimmed around the blue, to create my own "shadow" of the stamped image and pop dotted it onto the card.
