Flamingo Birthday

 It's time for a new challenge theme at
The Sisterhood of Crafters
and our theme is Embossing either Dry or Wet
and chosen by our 'sistah' Annie!

I chose to go with a 'wet' embossing on a 'new to me' die.
I have to admit I created this card in February so I received the die
right around then, but being gone most of the summer I needed to work ahead!

I die cut my flamingo from a bright pink card stock
then rubbed Versamark all over it
and heat embossed with SNS Flashy Flamingo embossing powder 
that also has glitter in it.
Funny how the name fits isn't it?

I sure like to hit the sales and the die cut underneath the flamingo
was also a 'new to me die' (I will list all below)
and I think it is so pretty!

A nice bright and cheerful birthday card!

Make sure to pop on over to The Sisterhood
and see al the beautiful designs from my 'sistahs'!!

Wow Dianne I looooooooooove that gorgeous pink flamingo and your background just shows it off perfectly. Watched a program with David Attenborough and explained how they get their pink feathers - so interesting.
