More Flamingos - Anniversary Flamingos this time!

Another Flamingo post and two posts on the same day!  That's not like me at all!

It's my fabulous Mum and Dad-in-Law's Wedding Anniversary today - Happy Anniversary Sue and Roger - I hope your day has been lovely!  Here is their card:


I started with the fabulous Flamingo Die-Namics die set by MFT.   I cut the pieces out and glued them together to make the two flamingos, the wings and beaks are painted with clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.  The large heart came with the flamingo die set too!  The patterned paper I used for the green circle and the sentiment banner are from a fabulous paper pad by Anna Marie Designs called Blissful Green - my lovely friend Anne gave it to me - thank you Anne!  The circle dies are Spellbinders and the Stitched Fishtail Banners are Elizabeth Crafts.  The sentiment is from Hobby Art clear stamp set, General Greetings and the little hearts are from a die from Spellbinders Flutter Love.  The main image and banner are popped up on foam tape for dimension.  I have just noticed that I forgot to give the flamingos their black eyes!  Silly me!  So sorry Sue and Roger! xxx

Oh Chris how fabulous and so clever to use those Pink Flamingo's is a totally different way to the previous. I love it when when I come across elements within my stash that have a multi purpose. Thank you again for sharing with us over at That's Crafty. Best Wishes Tracey.

Oh I love this one Chris, those flamingos are just perfect for an Anniversary card, I love the heart in the centre of the couple. I think they look better without black eyes, it looks like they have their eyes closed, which they would do if they were all loved up (or kissing!).... lol. It really is a beautiful card! Hugs, Anne xx
