June Duel

The Dueling Darlings June theme was:  Flip Flops and Sunshine!

Our hostess, Melina, sent a bright and wonderful kit.  The kit included:

Images and Sentiment from CTMH.  Patterned paper and card stock by DCWV, Recollections, MME and SU!; Sunshine Cricut die cut; Joleen's flip flop embellishments; Baker's Twine from CTMH; rhinestones by Studio G; button from MFT; Kaiserkraft flowers; and American Crafts ribbon.

And this is my creation:

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my side bar for all the Dueling Darlings blogs and be sure to check out their creations.

Enjoy your weekend!

Oh I love how you used the flip flop embellishments! The flower in the middle of the sun is wonderful too! Great use of the kit. :)

wow wee...this is a beaut. I love how you used the flower and button inside the sun and the flip flops look like they are walking delicately on a balance beam (my girls were gymnasts). I love your card...you did an amazing job on this challenge...well done. ♥
