Red, White and Blue - Summer Card!

This weeks challenge is Red, White and Blue over at SULateNightStampers and so I decided to do more of a Summer card and after looking at the Stamping 411 sketch this week, this is what I came up with!

The sketch was just perfect for these flip flops and I am so glad I decided to use it!  I just stamped them in Real Red and then colored them in by using markers and water color pencils.  The sentiment was made in my digital studio by using the brush stamp set called "Fourth of July".  I lightened the fireworks by lowering the Opacity and then using the text added the Summer Fun, printed it out and then punched it out using the 1 1/4" punch.  Easy Peasy!!

Here is a close up of the flip flops:

So now I have two challenges in one card!  Love it when a plan falls into place!
