This is my submission for my first ever PTI blog hop!! A little nervous, but excited all at the same time :0) I really love the Star Prints set and knew I wanted to use it. But I was having trouble finding a summer picture to inspire me. For some reason I kept telling myself I had to find a picture with a star in it. Once I saw the bright colors and stripes in this picture of flip flops, however, my brain snapped back into creative gear and I decided to use those as the starting point for my card.
I used blue as my base, just like the blue background in the picture. I used a summery striped background paper to tie in with the stripes on the flip flops, and I used the green from the straps to pull in the color of the large sparkly star. I wanted to use some sort of cording at the top like in the picture, but I opted for the brown and pink pom ribbon to tie in with the colors in the pp and to give it just a touch of "girliness" :0) Finally, I used a white banner flag to stamp my sentiment on to match the white frothy ocean foam at the bottom of the picture.
This was fun . . . hope you like it and that perhaps this card inspires you in some way :0) Thanks for stopping by!!
