Do you ever make a card that just speaks to you? Sometimes I do. And this is one of them. It is the Tale of Two Angry Flamingos. It goes something like this:
“Fred, does my wing look OK to you?”
“Yes Ethel” Fred says without looking up.
“FRED, does my wing look OK to you?”
“Well, I never, my wing is on upside down. How are we ever going to go see my mother? We aren’t going to be able to fly. AND your wing is upside down too!”
“Did you hear me? Your wing is upside down too!”
“Wait – did you say we are going to see your mother? I never said I was going to see your mother.”
“WHAT????” says Ethel.
So there you have it – I glued their wings upside down. When I got the card done, I thought – hey – something looks off here! I stamped and fussy cut their legs – I can only imagine the conversation if I hadn’t given them legs!
I used dies from the latest Reverse Confetti release to make these flamingos and the background shape. I plan on entering this card in the Retro Sketches challenge. The sketch calls for embellies on the bottom right side of the card. However, I thought that looked a bit too much like….droppings.
Well, I am going to leave Fred and Ethel to their squabbling and go back to work!
