Happy Bird-day!



I had fun creating this card for the new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, the Retrosketches challenge and Seize the Birthday challenge where anything goes!  I had a piece of watercolored paper in my leftover pile (Spun Sugar with a hint of Picked Raspberry distress inks were used then mottled with splatters of water) which was perfect to diecut the flamingo.  The wing was stamped with Melon Mambo (SU) ink.  I love how the tropical flowers and
foliage in the new Toucan of Friendship stamp set coordinate perfectly with the Fabulous Flamingo set - both by Reverse Confetti!  The florals were popped with varying thicknesses of foam dots/tape and highlighted with Crystal Effects and Yellow Stickles.  I used the following Copic markers:
YG05, RV02, RV06, Y17, YR68.

Thanks so much for stopping by...
