Truly sends greetings from Naples beach...

This week Truly is getting a few rays on the beach.

It was a challenge putting this together.  I wanted it to look like a vintage post card.  It's actually a composite of three photographs, clip art and texture.  

Naples beach.  Using the clone tool, the figures on the left removed from the photo.
