Flamingo Birthday

Hi everyone,

  Bitten by the Bug2 challenge is using Life is a Beach cartridge flamingo. The catch was to make the flamingo any color but pink to really make it a challenge. This was a fun challenge to do and the Design team cards are just so beautiful that I needed to make a flamingo for myself. Check them out and see for yourself how adorable they look. Second was Fantabulous Cricut challenge and the theme was Tropical. The DT had some great cards also.  I used the cuttlebug folder Victoria for the background. Cut the flamingo at 3.5, added faux stitching and stickles.

Paper: DCWV glitter pack, SU taken with teal, so saffron
Ink: black gel pen
Accessories: life is a beach cartridge, 1/4" circle punch, polka dot ribbon

Thanks for stopping by to visit, Thank you  to all my followers, I appreciate that you like what I have created.  Happy Creating everyone!

What a great card you did, The paper you used is great and the way you cut it almost looks like you flamingo has a tropical shirt on! Did you do that on purpose!? LOL Thanks for joining us this week at BBTB2.
