what makes you different...

Hey friends!!   Have a little card to share that I made today for a few challenges:  Color Throwdown, Reverse Confetti July Sketch for You to Try and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  furry friends.   I will state upfront that my "furry friend" is a flamingo, but I figured it was okay to enter the SSS challenge since two of the design team members used flamingos on their cards.  I think flamingos are probably rather furry when they are babies, lol!   Anyway... I used the Reverse Confetti set Fabulous Flamingos and the matching dies.  When I saw that set I had to have it because I have a little thing for flamingos (a tiny little thing... I have one flamingo statuette that I purchased from an antique shop years ago and that is it, lol.).   Still trying to make a dent in my huge patterned paper collection so I tried to find papers that worked well with the current Color Throwdown combo.  Found good matches in two different pads (one is a My Mind's Eye pad and the other is a BasicGrey pad).   Die cut and stamped the flamingo using pink and orange inks.  Brought in the green with patterned papers and the black with ink and black cardstock.   Attached the little banner (from the RC die set Tag Me) using a couple of staples.   After everything was adhered to the card base I decided to add a little pink button tied with some black baker's twine.  


Thanks for stopping by today...

 
 
Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Inks:  Stampin Up! Pumpkin Pie and Pretty in Pink; black baker's twine; Dies:  Spellbinders plain circle dies, Reverse Confetti Tag Me  and Flamingo Confetti Cuts

Gorgeous card Rosemary :-) I love the flamingo, very cute, and we decided that flamingo's have furry tummies, like duck down, only flamingo down to keep them warm ;-) haha
