For tonight I am playing along again with Sunday Stamps and also with Creative with Stamps. I cannot get enough of Sunday Stamps color palette.. So fun and cheery.. Anyway, here is my card for today, enjoy!
|The colorful splattered background works nicely with the flip-flops.|
The flip-flops sit on white circles that help visually anchor them to the card.
|A fun birthday card for a recipient that is just as |
cheery and dynamic as this card.
|I really like the orange shoes braking away from the uniformity of the others.|
It also points your way to the sentiment! Love it!!
My cousin is celebrating her forty-second birthday today! And of course in classic fashion I am late sending out her card. Even though I had the idea days ago I procrastinated and it didn't come to fruition until today. UGH! Oh well better late then never, right?
My cousin loves the beach. So I thought a card with flip-flops and a funky backdrop would perfectly fit her personality. The background reminds me of when we were kids and splatters were all the rage in fashion. Remember, the 80's, or would you rather forget? Swatch watches, bangle bracelets, hairspray, and spandex leggings with splatter tops was the 'in look' of the day. I remember my grandmother would say: 'Why on earth would you buy something with spattered paint? I can do that and save a lot of money.'. She said the same thing when ripped, acid washed jeans were all the rage. Anyway, I think my cousin is going to love it, even though it is late.
Okay for real this time I am going to bed. Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you enjoyed your stay! So, until next take care and happy crafting.
All the best,
