Flip Flops

What is the saying? "It's summertime and the livin' is easy" And summertime means break out the flip flops. Although the teenagers here in southern Indiana even wear flip flops in winter.
I had a scrap of "water paper" that was just meant for this scene. On the small white piece, I sponged on SU's Baked Brown Sugar at the bottom and then stamped the sandcastle in the same color.The sandcastle is from an old stamp whose label is long lost.. Somehow I always get that sandcastle a little tilted. Sure hope it doesn't fall down. Then I stamped some sandpipers from SU Wetlands and colored a little turquoise around them. Then sponged on some turquoise water and Pool Party Sky. The sun is Daffodil Delight applied with a q-tip. Flip flops are another of the old stamps, colored and fussy cut. I like to use raffia ribbon on beach cards. It reminds me of the sea oats on the dunes. Does it all make you run to the beach for some summer fun?
Inside, I added a seashell and colored it lightly with pencils.
