Just Magnolia - Week 6 - "Get in Shape"

I have just finished my card for this weeks "Get in Shape" challenge
at Just Magnolias Blog.

I didn't want to use the obvious type shapes,
SO - I just HAD to be Different.
I have to tell you that this shape,
and layout was a complete brain storm on my part.

I am one of those people that have a severe flip flop fetish!
So of course the first thing I thought of was...

Well I thought and thought, and then set out to create my design.
I think it turned out just okay, because now that it's finished
I have thought up other ideas, so I will for sure use this idea again.

One thing I have to tell you though, before I show you the card.
For some reason, when I photographed this card,
my glittered paper I used for the flip flop straps,
ONLY APPEAR to not match
but in REAL LIFE - they do match,
the same pink that I used to colorTilda's bandanna -
AND the three little flowers are punched from SHINY paper,
they also are shades of pink that DO MATCH....
So why it photographed so much differently - Who Knows!

So okay, Now....
Here's my very own designed pair of FLIP FLOPS!I colored Tilda with my Copics, and the DP is from DCWV
(even the glittered paper)
I still just can't get over how "OFF" this card looks in this picture
with the glittered paper and punched flowers
having the appearance of NOT MATCHING
It's really driving me nuts - can you tell? LOL

I love the card, of course you would choose FLIP FLOPS. Did you have a template for the sandals or did you draw them yourself? Very cute!!!
