Surf's up! Wish You Were Here

Happy saturday, everyone!  hope you enjoyed all of our Christmas in July festivities at Catch The Bug! Now we're back to our regular challenge schedule, with today's challenge.  This time, we have a sketch challenge for you! Perfect for helping you come up with ideas for new card layouts.  Remember, we have our usual digi prize packages up for grabs from Bugaboo Stamps, so hurry over to Catch The Bug, check out the sketch and play along!

My card today uses the image summer duck - suntan, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used the sketch, of course, from this week's sketch challenge at Catch The Bug. I've used this gorgeous pleated Stampin Up ribbon, from my stash.  The flip flops are stickers from my stash, matted with card stock and attached with foam mounting tape for dimension.  The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.  I love how this card just screams summer!

My apologies for the glare on the flip flops in the pic.  The sheen from the stickers played tricks with the camera.
