Flamingo Time!!!

Wow - this week's sketch for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge almost had me... it was a tough one Michelle.


What to do.......


Bam!!!  I got it!!!!

One of the new paper packages released with the Seasonal Expression 2 is Calypso and it is cute, cute, cute.  Patterned paper of flamingos, polka dots, stripes and more along with fresh spring colours make this the perfect paper package for summer pictures!!!  But what about card creations?

Don't you just love the pink flamingo!!!  It is so much fun and a snap to do with Tickled Pink thin cuts and My Acrylix.   Simply run the thin cut through your cutting machine and then stamp the images - I used cotton candy first and second generation and black inks.  I popped the wing up on foam tape and then the entire flamingo again with thin foam tape for added dimension.

To finish off, I added some black sequins from the Calypso sequins, and lagoon zipper lace trim from my stash, and faux stitching with a white gel pen.

This card can be used for a graduation/congratulations card but I think I may use to welcome a baby girl!!!  Don't forget to check out the other creations at http://atlanticheartschallenge.blogspot.ca/
