Blog Candy Alert! - Summery Celebration Card

It's almost my 6th Blogoversary, so I made this card to show off one of stamps I'm offering in my Blog Candy!

The flipflop border was made from a file from SVG Attic's Just Beachy set. The papers, tapes, flowers, and brad are form my stash. I filled the shaker card with red star sequins, blue glitter, yellow microseconds, and music notes that I cut on my Silhouette Cameo.

The stamp is Lounging Miles by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and is part of my Blog Candy, along with two Shake It Card templates like I used for this card:


The colors of the flip-flops colors were inspired by the new sandals from Austin Footwear Labs, which are created from recycled scrap tires, are casually comfortable, and were coincidentally partly developed by my awesome brother-in-law. I know it's shameless promotion, but they really are groovy shoes

Speaking of shameless promotion, this card is also a reminder of the current challenges at Pile It On (Your Flag Colors) and The Crafter's Cafe (Summer Fun).

I was also inspired by the following fabulous challenges:
Eureka Stamps: Red, White, Blue
Fairy Tale Stampers #120: Flip Flops
Perfectly Rustics: Add Movement (shaker card)
Sketch Saturday: Sketch

Thank you for visiting & be sure to check out my Blog Candy,
