PPA#47 Summer Theme Challenge

Well what could be more summer-y than the bright colors in the Pink Flamingo DSP and flip flops?
This card is my take on PPA#47 here.
I started with a card stock base, of soon to retire, Summer Sun and layered a piece of Real Red. The patterned papers are from the also to retire, Pink Flamingo DSP. I ran a strip of Summer Sun thru the Scallop Edge punch and added some dots with a white gel pen. The flip flops from Holiday Blitz (also to retire) were stamped in Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise and Real Red then punched out with the 3/4 inch circle punch and layered onto pieces punched from the 1 1/4 inch circle punch. I also popped them up with Stampin dimensionals. "Just for you" from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Real Red and punched out with the Word Window punch. Finally, a piece of 1/4 inch Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Holiday Blitz and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Real Red, Summer Sun and Tempting Turquoise, Pink Flamingo DSP
Inks: Real Red, Summer Sun and Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: 3/4 inch and 1 1/4 inch circle punches, Word Window punch, Scallop edge punch, Stampin dimensionals, white gel pen, 1/4 inch Tempting Turquoise grosgrain
