Flamingo Birthday....Freshly Made Sketches #250, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Flamingo, Uniko Challenge #35~Inspired by a Song Title, Less is More Challenge #290~Exotic

Hello,

Back with a second card - and minimal babbling (I hear you cheering!):


Heading to the galleries at: 

Freshly Made Sketches #250

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Flamingo


Uniko Challenge #35~Inspired by a Song Title.


My inspiration (okay, okay...I remembered it 'after the fact') is from Tracy Byrd's song, "Pink Flamingos' (some good country twang happening in that tune!)

Less is More Challenge #290~Exotic (if my card is too busy, totally understand if you remove it from the gallery)

Recipe:


That's all from me.  Watching the  Olympic closing ceremonies is my next 'do' task. I'll miss the excitement that's kept me entertained for the past couple of weeks.  The Tour of Spain road bike race (Spain's 'equivalent' of the Tour de France), however, has started...that makes me happy.  Actually, it makes my husband super happy *grin

Thanks so much for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!

Fantastic card, Carol! I adore your Pink Flamingo (and the song...Tracy Byrd is awesome). I also really like that panel with the stamped leaves. It works so well! I hear you on the end of the Olympics. It's been a fun ride. Hope you have a great week. Hugs!

This is soooooo stinkin' cute! I love the bold pink flamingo paired with the softly colored leaves. Like how you also added a few subtle bits of pink with the pretty little flowers!

Loved watching the Olympics too! I never cease to be amazed at the ability of the athletes...and the cost to get them to this level! A sign of dedication (time & $$$) by the athlete and the parents!

Hellllooo, Carol!! I've been MIA in my commenting too! I hope you are doing well?!? The Colorista line will be on HSN next Tuesday. I think it will also be on their website, not sure if they ship to Canada but I'm sure you can find out!! The markers are very nice, great way to try out their alcohol markers with out a major investment!!!

Loving those soft green shades with the pop of pink, Carol. I don't think it's too busy, some nice white space there. So sorry I've not been visiting much lately, life just gets really busy sometimes! Hopefully I'll swing by more often.
Thanks for sharing with us.

My Granny duties over the past few weeks have taken their toll on my commenting time... many apologies for the late visit!
This is fab, we wouldn't dream of removing it... there's white space and a simple design... just beautiful!
Thanks so much
