Happy Summer Flip Flops

The Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week is to celebrate the colours of our countries flag. Canada's Flag Day is observed annually on February 15th to commemorate the inauguration of the Flag of Canada on that date in 1965. Previous to 1965, the Canadian Flag was the Canada Red Ensign which had been our Countries flag since 1868. There were four colours in the Red Ensign, which would have been fun ... but our flag is the Red Maple Leaf and red and white is the order of the day.  
I decided on a fun and light summer card for the challenge starting with my flip flop embossing folder. I decided to highlight one pair of the flip flops, so die cut the red circle frame and added red and white twine to one side of the frame going around the back of the card, then attaching to the card base on foam strips. I coloured the flip flop in red and added a crystal gem to each. For my sentiment, I heat embossed using red embossing powder and die cut with the small stitched rectangle die and finished with a few sequins and crystal gems. I know just the person to send this to. Thanks for visiting today ... see you next time.
