ColourQ Challenge #139

Good Morning and happy Thursday...hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far.  The card I am posting today makes me want to hop on a plane for Hawaii...When I saw the colors that needed to be used for this week's challenge I immediately thought of sand and ocean and then the flip flops popped into my head. It's amazing how we think of ideas based just on a grouping of colors.  I used the In the Meadow die from PTI and tilted it to get the illusion of sand on a beach...then made what I think is an adorable pair of flip flops but the card still needed something, but wasn't sure what so I left it sitting on my desk for a few days, then it hit me it reminds me of Hawaii so what else could I do but add a lei...Thanks for taking a peek!

Ingredients (all PTI unless noted)
Solid Card Stock: Spring Rain, White and Enchanted Evening
Patterned Paper: Fine Linen
Stamps: Flipping Out
Dies: Flipping Out
Pearls: SU
