{Pin}spirational Challenge

Back AGAIN ------

School's out for most places around here and that means SUMMER!  When I looked at the inspiration photo from {Pin}spirational Challenges, that's what I saw - along with the green and blue dots of course!  So, basing my card on the photo, here's what I came up with........

  

I used several of the little flip flop images from Just Beachy (SU) and the sentiment is from MFP.  A little matting, dimension, embossing, and adding that spotted ribbon - and the card is complete - almost!  Of course I just had to had a tad of bling to that pair of flip flops in the center.   


Aren't these darling little outfits!   Love all the spots and stripes and those fun and summery looking colors!

I'll enter this in the challenge at The Paper Players (Summertime) and Our Craft Lounge (School's Out).


IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR MY SHOPPING OUR STASH POST - IT'S DIRECTLY UNDER THIS ONE.

Come on over and join in on the fun at {Pin}spirational Challenge and see what you can create using our inspiration photo!  Who knows, you may even be the winner!!

Thanks for stopping by.................
