Still trying to tempt in the summer....

Hmm.. I'm not so sure!  
We have had the odd hot day, with sun, but then within 24 hours, rain,
thunder and even hail! 
So... I thought I would try and help myself into the summer mood, 
with this months card for Patties Creations challenge...

Pattie is challenging you to make a card for the old favourite challenge:
"anything goes!"

I chose her image called "flip flop trio".

I knew instantly, what I wanted this card to look like -
and the paper I was going to use. 
(I have a real thing at the moment, for stripey paper!)

After printing off the image, 
I coloured it using my promarkers, 
in similar colours to the backing paper. 
I inked the edges of everything 
and embossed a couple of lines across
the long white edges. 
I wanted to keep this card CAS and so
added a simple (freebie) sentiment form desert divas.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
