Fun In The Sun at The Shabby Tea Room

It's Monday and time for a new challenge at "The Shabby Tea Room"....
Rebecca is our hostess this week and she has chosen the theme
"Fun In The Sun"
Rebecca has asked us to use at least 3 colors in the inspiration photo plus one or more
of these items, vellum, polka dots or ribbon.

 Our sponsor this week is "The Cutting Cafe"

and I chose to use their adorable "Flip Flop" cutting file!!!

After cutting out the card base for my 'flip flop", I found a pretty patterned floral
paper which I machine stitched to the card base!!
After adding the strap I embellished it with 
a red satin blow and a Teresa Collins butterfly...

The little "for you" tag is adhered with cloth covered floral wire....
I like how it kind of stands "up" on it's own!!  
The sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe "Balloon Shaped Card" file.

I think this is the cutest card...wouldn't it be fun for a summer party....
you could make them in so many colors and styles, I think it would be addicting!!

The cut file also comes with an envelope to fit....I cut mine out of a flower pattern vellum!!

I would love to have you head on over to "The Shabby Tea Room" and see all the lovely
inspiration the other "shabby girls"  have for you.....why not join in our challenge and have some 
"fun in the sun" with us!!!! 

Entering in the following challenges:
Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party .... Summer Time
Crafty Calender .... Summertime Fun
Time Out .... Fun In The sun
