Going Dotty over at Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

Well, it's not hot enough yet for my card, but I couldn't resist making a card with The Flipflop from the Ladybug Crafts Ink new Shoes n' Bags release for Lisa's Totally Ladybug Tuesday challenge this week...

 
 

Yep, as soon as I saw them I thought of "yellow polka dot bikini" so that's what my paper had to be!!  It was bright enough as it was but I decided to go the whole hog and team it up with sunny blue and hot red too!  Get those sunglasses out!  I think this is one of my fave cards - you know how much I like BRIGHT!  The fabby sentiments also come with the flipflops - I love it that Kerry does that with the LCI stamps!

You can see the other dotty DT spotty makes here - you won't be disappointed!  Bye for now and see you soon!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird
Stamps: LCI
The Flipflop
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ribbon from stash
Tools: Nestabilitie dies, Stampin Up large window punch, Fiskars border punch

Fun shapes and papers. I love the ribbon and how you've used the flipflop on the inside as well. Gorgeous summer card.

It's so cold over here I had to wear gloves when I walked our dog this morning! What happened to the lovely sunshine and +20C weather we had over Easter weekend?
