A Flirty Flamingo Hello!

Hi all,

A quick post today as summer is winding down and I'm working to get my kiddo set for his freshman year at college. I know the house will be empty without him, but it's time he heads out in to the world to figure out how life works. My bedroom is beginning to look like a retail store; I'm housing the college stuff in there for the next 2 weeks.

As other demonstrators are sneak peaking holiday items from the new catalog, I'm just not ready to give up on summer. This fun flamingo from Pop of Paradise just makes me smile and I think it would do the same for the recipient.

I broke out my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to create my own DSP. I also sponged the raised embossing with Flirty Flamingo to give the background a bit more depth. The sentiment was stamped with Cucumber Crush ink, covered with clear embossing powder and heat embossed. I used the layering circle framelits to create the flamingo backdrop and the banner punch for the banner.

The Flirty Flamingo bow was accented with a bit of Cumcumber Crush Baker's Twine for a fun little finish.

Hope you enjoy this happy hello!
