"Feathers" The Flamingo

Hi everyone! I'm hoping today's card puts as big a smile on your face as it did mine! I created the card for our "Emboss It" Challenge this week at The Pixie Cottage. The super cute flamingo is the Feathers digital image by Pixie Cottage Stamps. I found these cute pink flowers in my stash and thought to make them look like the flamingo's tail feathers!

My card base is Cameo Coral layered with PTI White then Basic Grey and Kraft cardstock both embossed using the Cuttlebug Victoria Embossing Folder. I ripped the Kraft and stitched around the edge of the card base. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. To embellish the card I cut paper flowers in half and finished them with kraft flowers and a snow pearl.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
