So flippin' happy...'s finally SUMMER!
This quick little card was made to celebrate Lil'Inker Design's Sunny Days challenge.

The inspiration is this photo montage:

I chose to focus on the blue skies, bucket of flip flops and the pin-wheel.

I created the sunshine/pinwheel with a circle of flip-flops in yellow and orange craft foam. The flip flop die works so well with this material--you can really see the signature stitched detail.
They are one of my favorite little die sets--so many ways to combine the elements for fun embellishments!

I glued them to a daisy-shaped flower, using baker's twine from The Twinery for the centre.
The background sky is a rubber stamp from Hero Arts.
Some torn kraft paper forms the beach, with the greeting pieced together from two Lil'Inker stamp sets, Darling Diamonds and Flip-flop Sentiment set.
Bring on those sunny skies! And check back to the Lil'Inker blog for a new release of must-have goodies, later this month.

Happy crafting! Also planting, mowing, cycling and all the other great things summer brings!
