4x4 Friday & Wednesday stamper

OK, I am sooo not a yellow and orange person and found this a tough one to do but wasn't going to be beat.
The sunglasses stamp is one from Inkadinkado which I have had for some time and used it for the first time today.. I suppose this is what a challenge does for you...makes you search the stamp boxes for inspiration. The bathing cap advert is from Karen at Scrapz the flip flops are an EBay find along time ago...they just seem to finish it off. I feel sure I will do this challenge again because it proved I can work with the 2 colours I would never normally use.
This card covers both 4X4 Friday and Wednesday Stamper Luv Chriss x

I'm the same as you, Chriss, yellow and orange aren't my colours either. But this is a lovely 4x4 and makes me feel all summery.Are the flip flops made of rubber or is it a picture?
Love Linda xx

I agree the background is beautiful - this is what I love about challenges - they really make you think outside the box (and if they make you use stamps you have never used then thats all for the good too - takes away the guilty feelings about buying them in the first place LOL!) Lovely summery page Chriss xx Karen
