A Bucket Of Sunshine

Hi Everyone!
Today's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is to 
make or use a tag in your creation.
I'm not one for making many tags and didn't know quite what to do which is why you find a bucket shaped sentiment that I hope will pass for a tag. :-)
The flip flop started off as an ingenious idea until I stuck it down (with scortape need I add) and couldn't remove it. :-/

Anyway!
My recipe:
Image: Mo Manning
Colors: Prismacolors
Papers: Doodlebug Designs
Flip Flop: free form from my own not so brilliant imagination

A close up:

The sentiment is yours if you'd like it. You know the routine, click, right click and save or go to my FREE SENTIMENTS box in the sidebar.

Gorgeous card! Love the image and the summer items you've added. I'm guessing that the flipflop was going to be your tag? I'm not much into to tags either. It all looks great! Hugs, dj

Well, I like the bucket, tag or no tag and the frog charm on it is sheer genius! Not done a flip flop in ages - my last one was on a scrapbook page I think - but I do like yours. Fab colouring as ever on a great image - don't recall seeing that one before.

Debbie said...

You are a genius!!!! Between the paper piecing of her coverup to your bucket tag, down to your your flip flop which I might add is so perfect for this card and your use of the ribbon as the toe strap is amazing. I absolutely love this card...And just to let you know, between you and Pat, I am going to be in a lot of trouble when I head over to The Charm Barn... Love the frog you added ADORABLE!!!!

Hugs
Debbie

Love the artwork - thought I'd let you know that, coincidentally "Sending you a bucket of sunshine" is also a derogatory and controversial military phrase in relation to the nuclear bombing of Nagasaki and Horoshima ;)
