Day 5 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Flip-Flops Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I know...I missed Monday.  I was planning on doing a blog post but I got up later than I wanted to and ....

Bella ...

and Bandit (the new one) ...

had to make a visit to the vet.  Her to get her nails trimmed and him to get his shots!! She hates the vet and he seemed to be having a great time.  LOL.  He is also getting along great with all the other dogs and I am very happy that they took to him.  AND...he has stopped his "happy peeing".  That was not fun.  

Today I am showing a really easy card I made for Day 5 of The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  Is anyone else following along with Kathy or joining in?  I would love to know.  I used an image from Northwoods Rubber Stamps of flip-flops that I have wanted to color for a long time and I used a phrase from a Unity set that I felt went perfect with it.  Since Spring has sprung here and it's getting very hot....and I live in flip-flops most days, I loved making this card.

I started by stamping the flip-flops and the phrase from Unity onto a piece of white cardstock, 3.5" x 4.75" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Then I pulled out some Sharpie and Bic fine tipped markers and colored in the flip-flops.  I also used Copic E000 Pale Fruit Pink for the "sand" around the flip-flops.

Then I pulled out the Artist Paper Pix 6" x 6" pad from Paper House and found this sheet of paper I liked because it looked like bubbles or water to me.   I cut a piece of this paper, 4.25" x 5.5" and adhered it to the card front.

And lastly, I adhered the piece with the flipflops on it onto a piece of dark blue cardstock, 5" x 3.75", which I then adhered to the card front.  I printed "including flip-flops all summer long" on to a piece of white cardstock, which I adhered to the inside of the card.

That's it....DONE!  The coloring took the longest but no longer than 15 minutes.  The rest is about 5 minutes.  Really.  I hope you enjoyed this card and post.
