happy bird-day...

Hello!!!  Yay!!!  I got another card made!!  This one is for the May Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try, Color Throwdown and AAA Cards (birthday).  I had big plans to get my card for this month's SFYTT done early, but then everything seemed to speed up and it was time for my shoulder surgery so any chance of making something until now was gone.  And since there is just a day or so left before the challenge closes I knew I had to get something made and it needed to be simple, lol!   I used the RC set Fabulous Flamingo along with the matching dies.  The flamingo was stamped using my mini MISTI so I could get a really nice image of the flamingo.  Then I die cut everything.  The rectangle panel was die cut with another RC die and stamped with the flamingo's legs and the sentiment using black ink and the body was adhered with foam dimensionals.  The banner were die cut using MFT's Stitched Fishtail Flag stax dies, trimmed down and adhered to a white panel.  The panel was then die cut with my favorite AJVD polka dot rectangle dies.  I partially embossed a portion of the panel for some additional interest.  Add the sentiment panel to the main panel and then adhered that to a rose red card base.  A few pink sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished things off. Oh and I think I will post this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.



Thanks for stopping by today...

Fun and cute card, Rosemary! That flamingo is adorable and I don't have any flamingo stamps, so this one might have to go on my wish list :)
