Just Us Girls #399 - Photo Week

Dear Ones~
This week is photo week over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Lisa has chosen this awesome photo for our inspiration.
Image result for summer vacation images

Aren't those gorgeous colors, so many possibilities with this one. Here's what I came up with:
To me, flip flops scream SUMMER VACATION, so I decided to stamp four pairs of them on these little 2" white panels and paper piece them all in the different colors reflected in the photo. LOTS of fussy cutting, but it was fun. I used SU markers to color in the straps and soles. Then I punched out wee little flowers with the same colored card stock and embellished the thong of each sandal. Of course I had to put a little gem in the middle of each flower for extra glam.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
GKD Sweet Mango Card Stock
GKD Jellybean Green Card Stock
GKD Passionate Pink Card Stock
GKD Turquoise Sea Card Stock
GKD Hello Sunshine Stamp Set
Colorbök Beach House Patterned Paper
Martha Stewart Flower Punch
SU Markers
Stash Gems
