Flippin' out!

 My daughter is headed to a birthday party any minute soon as I get this posted! LOL! Of course the birthday girl needed a card and I found some fun, summery gift bags at Dollar Tree the other day which inspired this design. I actually bought 3 different bags and made 3 cards to go with them. I will share the other designs later.

 Last week's Make it Monday for PTI was to create a flagged border, which you can see I did here.  I just used some scraps of left over paper and called it good!  Of course, I am obsessed with adding a die-cut number if I know how old the recipient is, or if they aren't ashamed of me putting it on the front! LOL!  I die-cut this one using pattern paper and then added some glossy accents over the top.

 It has been a while since I used narrow grosgrain ribbon on a card, but it seemed to work nicely with this design since I had already used a lot of patterns and things on the border.  I added some stickles to the hearts on the flip-flops, which I smeared! Ughh!  I tried my best to clean it up, and truly it shows up more in the photo than in real life!
You can see part of the gift sack here.  Fun and summery!Thanks for fluttering by!

I keep looking at this stamp set and puttin it on the back might have convinced me to just bite the bullet and get it...your card is so cute and clever...and what a nice way to make "summer cards"! Love those flip flops!!
