Happy Friday

Good morning to you! I have some quick cards I made this week using Echo Park's A Walk in the Park collection.
I love this collection, the colors are fun and the images are cute, and I love love the letter stickers that came in the collection!
First is this 4 you card. I added blocks of the orange and green, then a scrap strip of raindrop and punched scallop strip of the green dot.  I used the square block sticker, adding in a scrap of the orange paper. I punched a butterfly from that orange, and added in a foam taped yellow butterfly , there is some neat dimension to it. I added a banner underneath and some yellow gems, and finished with Amer. Crafts glitter stickers.
Edited to add- The Butterfly punch is my martha punch.

Next, I created this similiar card, adding in the blocks of green and orange ( some of my fav colors together!!) I added a strip of the banner paper across the bottom, and created another banner to go under the butterfly block. The block is cut from their journal spot paper, and I added the foursome of butterflies on it with coordinating gems. A button and twine bow finished the card.

My last card I paper pieced a cute boat, using Glue Arts foam adhesive for the sails and the water. I free hand cut out some clouds and distressed their edges. I added Echo Park letter stickers on my boat, the SS SMILE :) and tied on a twine bow.

I also wanted to share with you a cute summer creation. On the Bobunny blog Patti shared some cute flipflops made with flowers and brads. I was at the craft store and found some black ones for $1, and I have tons of these flowers, so I let the girls pick out the colors they wanted, and created these fun flipflops. I added more flowers on to ours, extending them out along the edges of the plastic. The girls love them, and Alizabeth has already asked me to create a couple more pairs for her.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Love the cards! Were the butterfly's on one of the papers? Or did you use a punch? If so what one if you don't mind me asking? I love the flip flops. I like how you extended them. I posted a picture of the ones I made my daughter the other day on my blog after I saw them on BoBunny's blog. I wan't a pair and I don't even wear flip flops.
