SHOPPING OUR STASH #448 - Tropical Delights


Good morning and welcome crafty peeps!
We have a fun challenge starting at
SHOPPING OUR STASH: Tropical Delights!

Palm trees, hula dancers, tiki bars, toucans, fruity drinks with little
blue umbrellas, hibiscus, anything like that is all good!

Here's the card I made:

Here's the inside:

I've had this flamingo die for at least a year. (scored it at Tuesday Morning!)
Can you believe this is the first time using it?! (well, if you know me, then
you know I hoard supplies and rarely use them right away. LOL!)
I looked up pictures of flamingos to color the beak for a more
realistic look, and blended Abandoned Coral DI to add shading to it's
back, wing, and legs. I uncovered some tropical looking papers to
use and added a simple sentiment to finish.
This flamingo may be my favorite new(ish) die. LOL!

I hope that you find some time to play along in our Tropical Delights
challenge at Shopping Our Stash. For more ideas, do check out
the tropical delights created by my teammies!

Thanks for visiting, have a great day!

Lovely card, Chris! I love your paper choices (great tension between those two papers,) and your layered Flamingo is perfect! Nice project!
