BBTB2/LAB/Flamingo


Happy Monday to all. Thank you for stopping by to view my take on the week's BBTB2 challenge. Our talented design team sister Melissa is the host and she selected Life Is A Beach cartridge and when she selected the flamingo, she asked us to make the cut in anything but pink. Here is my card.

I cut 6 Flamingos. I cut two scalloped mounts, embossed them and lined 3 Flamingos up on each. This is my version of a Flamingo Chorus Line.

Recipe:
Cricut: Life Is A Beach (Flamingo)
Calligraphy (Sentiment)
Scalloped Mount: EK Success Edge Punch
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Swiss Dot
Felt Flowers
White Paint dots

Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate your visits and comments because they surely inspire me onward. Do take a peek at the cards the design team presented here.

I forgot to tell you - while I was assembling my card I thought of you - used my nesties and THEN I remembered to emboss! I always seem to forget, then I see your card and think "why didn't I do that?!"
