FFC #9 "Summer Fun"

Hello my bloggy friends!
 Welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge.
This week's Challenge:
"Summer Fun"
Starts: Friday, July 19th 12:00AM
Ends: Friday, July 26th 6:00PM
(central time)
We have now changed the challenge rules to 3 entries per person per challenge except for the Anything Goes challenges which will be unlimited.
 Here is what I created this week for the challenge:

My card is a 5x5 sized card. My card base and first layer are CS by Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is handmade paper that I had in my stash. I used my pazzles machine to cut out the sentiment frame at 1 3/4", 2" and 2 1/4". I stamped my sentiment in Ranger's archival black ink and then added some glossy accents to the words "Fun" and "Sun" as well as some stickles. The sentiment is popped up on foam tape on 3 layers. It is adhered to the patterned paper strip which measures 1" and then that is matted on a piece of solid CS that measures 1 1/4". The strip is also popped up on foam tape. I distressed my patterned paper edges with my distressing tool to give it some texture. The cute flip flops were stamped onto white CS and colored in using my prisma colored pencils and gamsol. I fussy cut them out and popped them up on 2 layers of foam tape.  I added some glossy accents to these flip flops as well and again, added some stickles.  Both the sentiment and the flip flops are from an old CTMH stamp set called, "August Word Puzzle".

 To finish off my card I ran some trimmings by Lawn Fawn around a couple of times and then tied off in some bows.  I was trying to go for a  lot  of dimension for
 this card and I love how this turned out.
Now let's see what the FFC Design Team has created for this Summer Fun Challenge:
