CFC67 & MIM #80

I am not quite ready to say goodbye to summer.  I love the fall with the changing leaves, cooler temperatures and warm sweaters but when it comes to footwear? I love my flip flops.  They are the last thing that I give up when the cooler temperatures come.  This weeks CASual Fridays Challenge is to create a clean and simple project that features banners or flags.  This week at Papertrey the Make it Monday technique was to use die cuts to create your own custom banners.  So why not combine these two challenges.


All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Lemon Tart
Stamps: Flippin Out
Ink:  Hibiscus Pink, New Leaf, Orange Zest, True Black
Dies: Flippin Out, Banner Borders
Impression Plate: Hello Sunshine
other: foam dots, twine (The Twinery)

I am NOT ready to let go of summer either Tracey it was so hot and unbearable for too long. Now we have pleasant weather that I hope sticks around for awhile. I'm also NOT ready to put my flip flops away! Your card is summery and fun.
