Happy 'flip flopping' Mothers Day

Okay, I know it seems like I am being a horrible daughter; but wait!! Tonight I am playing along with Little Tangles and Curtain Call and I promise the title of this post will make much more sense.

   

The challenges I am entering:
Little Tangles: Challenge #57 - sketch
Curtain Call: Theme - Flip Flops

See not so bad!! And here is my card...

This is the final product. The upper left of the card you
will see the CS is actually shimmery blue.
Perfect poem for Mothers Day.
Dry embossing the top with my Swiss Dots folder.
brings both the inside and outside together.
This is the card without the sentiment
just waiting for the right recipient. 
This card actually surprised me how well it turned out.. The watercolor panel is extra from another project and the flip-flops are rub-on images from my discount craft store. You can't really see it, but all the shoes are framed in a sketchy box heat embossed in white. The Swiss Dots embossing folder added a bit of texture to the design. Plus, the pattern matches the shoes patterns. The yellow border around the watercolor panel is very subtle but important. It brings out the yellow in the panel and also contrasts nicely with the crisp blue. These colors are all Summer! And like I have always said 'It is not Summer without flip-flops'.  

One more post for the night and I'm out! Thank you so much for stopping by!! I really do appreciate it. And if you feel so moved please feel free to leave me a comment. Take care and have a great night!

All the Best,
Shawna
