Happy Birthday Lauren!

This is the card that I made for my niece Lauren's birthday next week inspired by a post on Dannisdoodles blog. This great flip-flop is one of a pair (well duh!) but I only wanted to use one. I cut out a large flip-flop- you can only cut this size out on the Expression- and covered it with spotty paper. I used the other shape as a template to shape the front of the card. I added two eyelets at the top of the shoe and made a hole where the toe-post would be and threaded ribbon from the top holes down to the bottom one and secured them at the back. I then added a large bloom and brad. I cut out Lauren's name from paper & adhered it to the top of the shoe. I stuck the whole thing onto a piece of white Bazzil and cut around with scalloped scissors leaving a border. The completed shoe was adhered to the corresponding shape on the card front. I covered the inside of the card with rainbow paper, added a sentiment and 3 flower gems to complete the card
Carts used:
Flip-flop- Life Is A Beach
Sentiment - Wild Card
Name- Lyrical Letters
Thanks for looking!
