What has Long Legs and dresses in PINK?

 It's a Flamingo!!!  Hello my  crafty peeps....It's a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash, #448 Tropical Delights. You have a lot of choices for this challenge, palm trees, hula girls, Tiki bars, blue drinks and the list goes on an on. I chose a flamingo, water and flowers. 

I used a three step flamingo stamp and I am very pleased I got everything in it's proper spot with only 2 tries, the first one was not bad until I stamped the beak/eye and it looked like he/she had a neck tattoo. I cut the first out and used it as a mask to do the sky.  The flowers and leaves are from a stampin'up set Botanicals, and the dies. This is the first time using the stamps. (I put the veins in the leaves.) Other than a practice run with the flamingo I have never attempted making something with it. 

Finished the inside with a flower/leaf and because I didn't think too far ahead last Sunday I don't have any sentiments with me that were suitable,  (just like the last card LOL)
I'm back home for a few days and I will take time to organize better this trip, It is not easy to decide what you are going to be using for the next 10 days,  I take all my food with me as well and twice this past week I was thinking of making a recipe only to find out the spice I needed was at home.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out the MAIN BLOG and see what Tropical creations the rest of the design team has made.

Barbara, I love to see the background on your cards' pictures, it looks like a sweet Summer place, just beautiful, I'm jealous.
And I just love your beautifully colored Flamingo, these birds' feathers are unique and you captured their beauty perfectly.
Awesome card, teammate.

Way to go on getting it on the second try! It would have taken me at least 6 tries. LOL! This is so gorgeous!

Barbara, this is so pretty! I love that you framed your gorgeous Flamingo. Those cute flowers in the corner are the perfect finishing touch! Love it!

I have that Flamingo Stamp/Die set and last night it was not my friend! Your stamping is perfection!

This is gorgeous! And to get it right on only the second try is quite the feat as far as I'm concerned. Beautiful background, as well!
