The Essentials of Summer

Flip Flops...the essentials of easy, breezy summertime dressing. I just got these new flip flops from one of my all-time favorite clothing stores, Hanna Andersson. I loved the style so much that I copied it for today's card!

It is Make-It Monday at Papertrey Ink, and today's sketches were inspired by photos of other products.

I used this sketch and combined it with the color palette of my new flip flops for today's card!

{Today's Brew: PTI card stock, PTI dies, PTI Think Big Favorites #12, Pacific Point ink (SU), DMC floss for buttons}

This color palette is a stretch for me. I'm not a person that gravitates to blues. Yellow, yes. Green, for sure. But blues...not so much. I like blue, but I'm way pickier about shades of blue. These colors are really summery...crisp navy paired with a fresh green and a little white to make it oh so preppy.

Thanks for visiting the cafe today!
