BUTTERFLY FLIP FLOPS

The Monday Greeting Card challenge at The Outlawz is CHILLERS - "Show us how you chill out in the Summer heat".

This is the card I created for the challenge:


To make this card I drew (freehand) the shape of a flip flop sole onto pink cardstock, cut it out freehand and inked the edges.  Onto that I added an offcut of bvutterfly printed DO and added a diecut butterfly embellished with three lilac gems.  Using a gel pen I added faux stitching and then matted the flip flop onto white cardstock to give it a more authentic look.

The sentiment is a store-bought one, and I attached it using pink satin ribbon and a bow embellished with a gem.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

365 CARDS, DAY 153, 'COMFORT ZONE' (for me my comfort zone starts with me putting on my flip flops always with bling)

  2. Hi Jen,
    Guess I should have checked TTT first lol. As you know I like your card and your pretty hot pink ribbon certainly draws the eye. Thanks for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday for the Focus on the Ribbon challenge. (In case you're wondering, I first spotted your card on MIM and popped over)
    Remember you can enter up to 3 projects and 3 tips.
    Hugs,
