Have a Lovely Day

Monday, July 21, 2014

I'm playing along with the first challenge over at Stamp Nation for their Beach Vacation event. Lots of the design team members used flip flops and I thought this would be a great time to bust out my NBUS flip flop dies.

I used a fun stencil from Memory Box and my sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I'm thinking now that I should have added a thin strip of black card stock to each side of my focal panel. Maybe I'll remake this card with that element added.

Happy Monday!


I'll also be linking this to the current anything goes challenge at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, the Mid Summer challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, the Spots and Dots challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and to the anything goes challenge at Curtain Call.

How fun and colorful this is, Alanna! The rainbow effect of the panel is terrific and those flip flops are so cute! I like it as is, but maybe some black would help it pop a little more. Would drawing some black lines along the edges work? Have a great start to your week. :)

That is a great stencil...such a bright rainbow of colors with the cute flip flops Alanna! I like it as is too...but black along the edges would make the sentiment pop and the panel stand out too. Both ways would be great!
