Two Angry Flamingos….
Thanks...PPA Challenge 212

Two Lovebirds (aka Flamingos)…

I am going to call this post, The Sequel.  You will be pleased to know that Fred and Ethel have made up!  They are not going to visit Ethel’s mother AND their wings are glued on correctly!! lovebirds

I really didn’t set out to make a second flamingo card but when I made it to my craft cave, this card just came to me.  I didn’t even set out to make the card based on the Mojo Monday Challenge 354.  See, Fred and Ethel were talking to me! They were worried about the bad impression they left yesterday.


I started off my card with Stampin’ Up! blushing bride and went looking for some DSP that had blushing bride in it.  Fortunately, I had the SU! flowerpot DSP sitting right on my craft table and drew the colors from the piece I chose. lovebirds closeup 1

An odd color combo but I am diggin’ it.  I also carried forward the triangle theme from the DSP on to the white layer – thank you SU! tiny triangles embossing folder.  The sentiment is stamped on a hand cut triangle. lovebirds close up 2

So we shall leave Fred and Ethel (for the time being…they may make a return sometime!) 

Fred:  “Oh Ethel, you are so wonderful!”

Ethel:  “No Fred, you are!”

“No, you are!”

“No, you are!”

“No, you are!”

This may go on forever so I am outtahere!
