I have always had an affinity for Flamingos. There is just something fun about a pink bird with long legs. Reverse Confetti had this wonderful stamp set in their newest release, and I had to have it. Aren't they adorable! I, also, used two of the dies from the same release called Tag Me Too and Perfectly Paisley. The patterned paper is from The Paper Studio.
While on vacation several years ago in the Bahamas, we visited the Ardastra Gardens in Nassau. It is the Home of the Marching Flamingos. They really are lovely, graceful birds. It makes me wonder, though, how they support themselves on those skinny legs.

You are the queen when it comes to ribbon and bows on cards. But what I really like on this different card for you, is the art deco look to the BG.. It just goes so well with the pink Flamingoes. So cute.ReplyDelete
