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)
- Flamingo - Reverse Confetti Fabulous Flamingo
- Leaves: Uniko Paradise Leaves Clear Stamps
- Tiny Pink Flowers: Uniko Paradise Clear Stamps
- Sentiment: Uniko Simply Said Birthday
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!
I love, love, love your card. The stamped background is fabulous. Thanks os much for playing with us at Curtain Call!
Gorgeous card, and perfect for our exotic theme at Less is More. The FMS layout suits this design so well! Thanks for playing along with us :)
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!
Eeeek! Lovely to see you using your Uniko goodies and awesome card. LOVE your song choice too. Thanks so much for sharing such a delight and joining in on the Uniko Challenge. Hugs Bev x
Oh your cards just get better and better carol...except the ones with spiders on...boy oh boy!!!! I HATE SPIDERS!! (real ones anyway)...lol.....anyway love this card with the fabby background and pretty flamingo (another song there but probably before your time!) Take care xx
Gorgeous card with this nice flamingo. Have a nice day, Ankie
What a sweet, tropical design! Thanks for joining us for the Curtain Call!
Fabulously tropical, Carol ... such a gorgeous leafy background for your pretty flamingo (that was the song I was thinking of!)! Hugs, Anita :)
Carol, I love this sweet tropical card, and your pink flamingo!
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!
Great combination of the challenges make for a really lovely card. Thanks for joining us at Uniko Studio.
Oh I do like this! Great combination of challenges - such a lush, tropical feel too. Thanks so much for playing along with Uniko this month! Deborah, DT.

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!!!
OH this is fabulous Carol! I love flamingos and your card makes me happy just looking at it! The panel of stamped leaves is just the perfect backdrop for that fancy flamingo! ((Hugs))
What a fun use of the sketch, Carol--love those tropical leaves!
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.
Less is More
Awesome flamingo! He is really showing off in from of those wonderful leaves!
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
"Less is More"
Love your colours - the soft greens really complement the bright flamingo x
