End of the school year - "Life is Good"

My son finished school for this year on Tuesday.  In the fall, he'll start grade 12 - his final year in high school.  He'll be working this summer at a plant nursery and hopes to find some time for his favourite activities - fishing, biking and swimming.

Here's the card that I made for him:

The card base is DCWV Shimmer in brown.  The next layer was K & Company Roam in yellow.  Only two Cricut cartridges were used for this card:  Everyday Paper Dolls for the bicycle, swimmer and fishing rod and fish and Graphically Speaking for the saying.  The swimmer was cut at 3 1/2 inches and various scraps of cardstock were used for the swimming trunks, hair, and accessories.  The bicycle was done in green and black - the actual colours of his bike.  The saying "Life is Good" was cut using two different shades of green cardstock.  The corners were rounded. 
So it is officially the beginning of summer for us and "Life is Good"!
