Dueling Darlings-Flip Flops & Sunshine

It is the 15thof the month and that means another Dueling Darlings challenge. Our hostesses for June are Carol for the Divas and Melina for the Dazzlers.
I loved all of the papers and embellishments that Carol sent--I wanted to use all of it!  She gave us so many options and she even gave us two images to chose to use.  She called this one the older one............  not sure what exactly she meant by that.  And---I am sure that when Jeanette comes back from Thailand, she will make a comment on that!

I think Ethel is so darn funny and I love the look on her face!  Carol sent us some sweet papers to use and some wonderful items to bling up the card.  The paper clip on the sentiment was handmade by Carol and we had a couple of choices of colors--what a cute idea!

Here is the inside of my card.

Hi Barb! I'm getting a real chuckle out of your card 'cause we seemed to have chosen almost the same dsp, image and embellishments from Carol's fabulous kit. Love that you used a square shape with all those delicious layers. The die cut panel of Ms Ethel really highlights all her loveliness! The "sun-kissed" tag with the ribbon clip...Terrific addition as our the flip flops. Then you created a beautiful interior with that dsp panel creamsicle embellishment! Love it!
