SCS Color Challenge - Celebrate

I made this card for SplitCoastStampers Clean and Simple Challenge #68 - "Summer" - and for Color Challenge #272 - Bermuda Bay, Real Red and Kraft.


I inked up the flip-flop stamp with a Creamy Caramel ink pad, then colored the flip-flops (on the stamp) with Real Red and Bermuda Bay markers. I matted it with kraft. I attached the Prima flowers with red brads. I thought they matched perfectly - even the design, with the circles, matched the flip-flop on the left. The sentiment (from the dollar bin at Michael's) was also inked up with Creamy Caramel and colored with markers.


Two miscellaneous things:  You still have another week to play along with the Repeat Impressions sketch challenge and have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.  You can find the sketch and details here.


I will try to keep up with posting on my blog, but I have a busy few weeks coming up.  Memorial weekend - no specific plans other than a Twins game on Saturday - GO TWINS!  The following weekend our daughter and granddaughter will be here for four days.  And the following weekend is our Yahoo! groups "Group Gathering."  Lots of fun things!


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
