Hello and thank you so much for visiting me! It was my youngest Granddaughter, Millie's 2nd birthday earlier this month and here is the card I made for her:
The flamingos are made with an awesome Die-namics die set by MFT called, funnily enough, Flamingos! I bought the set with some birthday money that was part of my present from my lovely Mum and Dad-in-Law, back in August - thank you so much Sue and Roger - I love this set! Its the first time I have used it! I cut all the pieces for the flamingos from scraps of card and paper then glued them together to make the birds - I think they are so cool and I will be using them lots! The flowers were also cut from scraps using Spellbinders Cherry Blossom die set. The yellow circle, also a scrap, was cut using a fab set I bought from the Works very cheaply - the stitched square was also cut using a Works die (also its the first time I have used this set) and a scrap of white card which I inked with Distress Inks. The two is cut from a very old die set, I am not sure of the make. The flowers, number two and the flamingos beaks and wings are all painted with clear Spectum Noir Sparkle Pen and I made the base card to match the Flamingos - luckily I had some full sheets of card to match! I dotted the eyes in with a very fine black marker and added a touch of glossy accents. I am pleased to report Millie liked it - I knew she liked flamingos.
**Addition - I forgot to say that the sentiment is by Lili of the Valley and is stamped in black Versafine.
