The base of the card is a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle die. The paper is from the DCWV Summer Stack that I won from Craftin Desert Divas...thanks again Tara and April!! The next layer is also a Romantic Rectangle, embossed with a Sizzix Hibiscus folder and inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The next two layers are Spellbinders Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents dies, inked with Victorian Velvet. The stamp is from K Andrew Designs Sweet July stamp set (I love this sentiment for birthday cards!!) Click HERE to purchase it. The flip flops are Spellbinders Surf's Up dies, inked with Victorian Velvet. Another pair was cut in white and popped underneath with foam tape for dimension. The gems are from Recollections and the ribbon is from May Arts.


The inside features another Romantic Rectangle and "Happy" from K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween stamp set and "Birthday" also from Sweet July.


For the box, the Spellbinders Surf's Up flip flops were cut into the top and pink crystals were added for the straps. The base of the box is embossed with a Cuttlebug Plum Blossoms folder. "Dream" is a Spellbinders Girlie Grunge Label, inked with Victorian Velvet.

My sweetest friend, this is absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE the pink and white... so girly and festive. (Pink is always festive because it's just so happy.) I adore those flip flops and love that you used them for both sweet gifts. The layers are so beautiful and I love that you nestled the sweet sentiment between sparkly designs. The poofy wispy bow is the perfect finishing tough. She will treasure these always, Lisa! Gorgeous creations, as always. :o) Thank you also for the opportunity to win! Have a sparkly, happy day!

Hugs and blessings!

Hi Lisa! Or should I start with, "GASP"?
Your cards and projects always take my breath away! I would love to come hang out with you and play in your craft room with some of your gorgeous dies!

Chriss is going to LOVE THIS and the flip flops are perfect for her!
It's been a real pleasure to hop with you to celebrate Chriss's birthday!
