One layer cards make me itchy.....

I'm more of a clean and layered kind of gal, so this card (which turned out better than I thought it would - always a bonus) was indeed a challenge to me. Here, let me show you what I'm talking about:

 Here's the inside:

I sponged the corner of the card with distress inks and a wave stencil. After I die cut and glued the flip flop parts together, I sat there. Staring. Now what?

I had one helluva time trying to decide where the flip flops and sentiment should go. Does that happen with you? I swear I spent at least an hour moving the flops and the stamp around and around the card before finally getting (I think) an eye pleasing triangle, from the waves to the flops to the sentiment, back down to the waves. Ok, it's a wonky triangle, but it's there. Trust me.

Then, of course, I says to myself, "Self, this needs something more." So out came the Crystal Stickles. And the corner rounder was a nice finishing touch. ☺ I'm quite happy with how this came out. 

Even if it makes me itchy.
