IO Challenge... Let's go to the Beach!

Hi all! It's time for another Impression Obsession challenge! And, this one could put a bit of sand in your shoes! The theme is... let's go to the beach! You can find out more about the challenge here on the IO blog. If you play, you could win a $25 gift certificate to the IO store...so grab those IO stamps and get inky! :-)

For my creation, I knew I wanted to use these fun floral flip flops! And, I also knew I wanted to use some bright colored paper to do a bit of paper piecing...

So, I stamped the flip flops a couple times on turquoise, lime green and pink decorative paper. Cut it out, and piece it together. The rest is just matting it up on some textured paper that I had run through my die cut machine with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I added a scallped edge and... then, the only thing that ws left was to add a fun little sentiment. I stamped Sending happy thoughts onto a punched circle, added a little bow and button and... voila! After I was done, I did add some glittle glue to my flower and also the little flowers on the insole of the flip flop.

And that, my friends, is it! You'll have to make time to give this challenge a try and be sure to stop by the other very talented IO Designers' Blogs and join them on their little stretch of the beach!
