Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Flip Flops

** Second post of the day so scroll down for my Mojo Monday card ** 

This week the Crew over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge is diving into summer with our Flip Flop challenge.  The LEAD for this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in a future challenge.

This photo screams tropical beach and oh how I would love to be in that beautiful, warm, turquoise blue, water...sigh...  Definitely took me back to our time in Hawaii last year and I can almost feel the sand between my toes, warm ocean breeze and sun on my face.  Soooo want to go back!!

Coming back to reality meant I pulled out this gorgeous Garden Party paper by Pebbles and paired it with a darker turquoise and light tan as per the colours in the photo.   Added a doily as my tribute to  "airy summer clothes" followed by a few layers and add ons for the sentiment panel.
