Two for one!

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day that I spent the entire day out with the boys!  It is just as beautiful today and since it was our first official day of summer break, we went and had a nice summery morning at the park!  I guess I'm really feeling the summery mood and my card reflects that today!  I loved the idea of combining patterned papers presented by Betsy for the Make it Monday Challenge this week!  With all of PTI's new pattern paper packs in such fun colors, I knew I could find some summery prints!  I decided to use the Retro Sketches:  Sketch #12 Challenge for my card as well!  Isn't it the coolest sketch?  I love the rounded corners that give the sketch movement!  So fun!


Here's my submission for both of these challenges.  For some reason, it makes me crave a glass of lemonade.  Hmmm....

Dies: Lowercase (Clear & Simple Stamps), Flipping Out (PTI)
Paper:  Classic Kraft, Aqua Mist, Aqua Mist pattern pack, Distressed Dots (All PTI), Salt Air 6x6 pad (Cosmo Cricket)
Misc:  Foam Tape (Scotch), Corner Chomper (Crop-A-Dile), orange rhinestones from my stash

  1. I love your card! the sandals are perfect and I really love how you cut out the HELLO and have pattern paper behind it! Very clever! I love flip flops...wish I could wear them year round, but I live in Oregon (as I sit here typing it is dumping outside! but I guess that is why it is so GREEN here! ha!)
