Flamingos and Ice Cream


Hello and happy Tuesday.  I fell in love with these sweet die cut flamingos from PTI, and used them to create a card for the Great Cover Up Challenge to create a card with added layers.  The flamingos are made by layering different die cut bits on the die cut bird base.  I layered the flamingos on top of each other, and then put them atop a die cut from the Waves Cover Plate die.  I am also entering this card at the Cupcake Inspirations #522: Oh Birdie and Shopping Our Stash #448: Tropical Delights.

What is more summery than ice cream?  I was inspired by the Summer Theme Challenge at Inky Paws #151.  How about a giant chocolate sundae?  I stenciled a very pale purple bit of basket weave to ground my image and sentiment.  I am also entering this card at Retro Rubber #161: Summer Treats (stamps are 3 years old), and Addicted to Stamps and More #408: Birthdays.

Thanks for Visiting
