Sun Please, Island Time

Hi Crafty Friends,
Here with a fun summer card inspired by the Paper Smooches Challenge Photo Inspiration below! It's Beach Time!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you like going to the beach?
A: Me? Honestly? No.... it gets everywhere and stays in crevasses for weeks ;)

 I stenciled the background using Stamplorations Merry Go Round Stencil and Distress Oxide Inks. I die cut the DARLING flip flops using Paper Smooches Flip Flop Die and arranged then on the card. I add the sunshine and clouds to create a fun summer scene and finished with the gems and sentiment.
