ThrowbackThursday: Fabulous Flamingo card

Happy Thursday!  Because I am not consistent with posting photos of my cards, I have many that I've made for classes and such in the past that I've never shared.  I thought I'd try and see if I can consistently share an older card at least once a week.  Even though the papers and/or stamps may be retired, the card may still inspire someone.

Here's a fun Flamingo card using the now retired "Tickled Pink" stamp and matching "thin cut" die.  The paper is "Calypso" and is still available, while supplies last.

This was a card we made in one of my classes this last Summer.  Please excuse the black ink smudge on the left side, it was my class sample and was dropped on an ink pad.  I think I need to take pictures of my cards before class starts, lol.

When I was searching for a design, I came across THIS card and was immediately inspired.  My card is blank on the inside, but I wanted to add a little interest.  CTMH had some washi tape that coordinated with the Calypso papers, so I used a strip of flamingos accross the bottom.

There were also coordinating Sequins with the Calypso pack.  I loved the little black and white striped ones, so I used two of those and added a sparkle to the center of each one.  I also used a sparkle for the flamingo's eye, so cute!

Well, that's all for today.  Thank you for checking in.  See you soon.

Very nice, Kandi!
I also love the idea of "throw-back" days - so we can still see new ideas with stamps that we got and maybe haven't shown any ink yet! Hugs!
