Little Flamingos

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. Today I created a card for 3 challenges, and it was quite a fun one. Sunday Stamps had an interesting color combo for us to use. The Paper Players wanted us to use birds on our projects. And Heart 2 Heart asked us to CASE a project from the CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book. I decided to CASE the middle card on page 28. I did not have this catalog or any of these papers/stamps. So I looked it up at closetomyheart.com, and I just had to use what I had. Here is the card I was casing:

And here is my card:

For the colors at Sunday Stamps, I decided to use Pear, Topiary, Black, Colonial White, and Watermelon. The last color seemed like a pinkish red, but I wasn't really sure about it. Watermelon is more of a hot pink, and it is the oldest color I have. It matched the flamingo pretty well, so it worked.

I used paper from several different packs. I had to search for a while, but I think they ended up all going together nicely! I hope you can come play along at these challenges this week!

Materials used:
Cardstock: Colonial White, Topiary, Pear
B&Ts: Calypso, No Worries, Blossom
Stamps: Life is Sweet Cricut Collection
Ink: Watermelon
Other: Calypso Complements, Calypso Sequins, Calypso Washi Tape, Burlap Ribbon, Artistry Cricut Cartridge
