Love the texture and heat of your rays and the contrasting, cool flipflops - you've captured both the heat and the ease of summer in one card!

Love the limitless layer sun and the Sunshine Impression Plate and the bling on the flip flops ~ Congrats again for being part of the design team!

Susie said...

First, I love PTI! No one in my humble opinion does cas design like they do. And I was delighted to see one of the new sets used on your card. Living in the west I live in flip-flops (even though I shouldn't). And boy, do I understand SUN! *laughing* This is a darling cas card using the cue word.

Michelle said...

Yeah, the first challenge! Love this sunny card! The flip flops are so cute and I love the embossed background!

Bonnie said...

Flip flops say Summer to me. I can't wait to put my shoes up! Great card Tracey! Thanks for the inspiration!

MackieMade Paper Creations said...

I love those flip flops and the embossing is fantastic. Great sun card!!

Noelle said...

Congrats on your new DT gig, Tracey! What a perfect fit for you, and them! Darling card, I LOVE that impression plate, it's awesome! I had better not get started at PTI though, or I could be in real trouble! ;)

Monika/Buzsy said...

What an awesome card Tracey. Love the dry embossing, the flip-flops... great design.

Carol L said...

Those flip flops are adorable, and I love that sunny background too! Super cute and fun card!

Ally said...

This card is so perfect for the challenge. Those little flip-flops are adorable in the stripes, and I love the impression plate texture. I keep kicking myself for not buying that one! I'll have to pick it up sometime soon. Nice card, girl! ;-) (And congrats on the DT appointment - they couldn't have picked a better gal!)
