Seize the Birthday - Animals

This time at Seize the Birthday our topping is Animals.  Of course, if you don't want to do the topping, it's always "Anything Goes" as long as it's for a birthday.

Here's my card

I chose this fun little flamingo set as my animals.  I made this card for my pretty little granddaughter, who is a Florida girl, so the flamingos seemed like a perfect choice.  I was, also, able to play with my new Hero Arts Ombre ink the look!

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made.  I hope you will be inspired and come play along.

The Recipe:
Reverse Confetti Fabulous Flamingo
My Favorite Things Ticked Pink (sentiment) & Garden Flourish background stamp
MFT Cross Stitch Oval die
RC Perfectly Paisley & Double Edge Scallop dies

  1. Glad that you had some time in your craft room. I know it relaxes me. This card is so charming for a birthday girl that lives in Florida. So Pink and Pretty!

  2. Beautiful card Sharyn. Love the background.

  3. So you like the ombre ink pads then? They have intrigued me, looks great here!! Love your little flamingos, they just make me smile. I'm sure your granddaughter will smile when she sees them too. Really, really cute card!!! Oh, and those paisley shapes really add so much - you clever girl!

    1. This is the first Ombre pad that I have tried, but I love the look. Can't wait to try the others.

  5. Pretty In Pink.....actually this is GORGEOUS!!! Oh a perfect card for your Florida Grand Daughter.....I wonder if she knows Nancy? lol

  6. Great background and super cute card! Love the vellum sentiment too! I never remember to use vellum and if I do I never think to tuck my sentiment panel behind so you don't see the adhesive until my card is already adhered to the base. GREAT CARD! my BFF!
