Wish you were here!

I made this card for a couple of challenges.  This is the first time I have used my Cricut Paperdolls Everyday cartridge. I think it may become a favorite of mine. I still have to try the Paperdolls dressup.  I think she turned out adorable. I love the red, white and blue theme.
