Relax in the Sun

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!  There's a Summer Card Project Contest on Echo Park's blog that I thought would be fun to join.  We've been having some extremely hot weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area this week, so I'm definitely in a summer mood!

For the background of my card I used a wood pattern from Echo Park's Fall Fever digital paper and waves from A Perfect Summer.  The orange layer behind that was edged with ekSuccess's Bumpy Road Edger Punch.

This adorable sentiment - one of my favorites for summer - is from My Creative Time's Have Fun in the Sun stamp set.  I used the MCT Curly Label Die and Stitched Curly Label Die to make the label, using more patterned paper from A Perfect Summer.

To make my cute flip flops, I die cut some fun striped paper from A Perfect Summer, using my Papertrey Ink Flipping Out dies.  I cut the flower layer out of orange felt and added some Teresa Collins He Said She Said Enamel Dots on top.  I think I'm ready to hit the beach now!
