swatch 250
For my card I used Memento inks: Rose Bud, Bahama Blue, Desert Sand and Toffee Crunch from the Dew Drop Collections. 

I used this flip flop template.  I stamped the large and small flowers from Paper Smooches Get Outta Town in the various inks and then added some magenta shimmer ribbon and some KaiserCraft bling.  Finally I stamped the Happy Birthday from Sentiment Sampler in Palette New Canvas.  I attached the ribbon everything using my favorite Dimensional Dots

I sure hope you'll play along.  There's some great prizes up for grabs!  Thanks for stopping by today!
