Happy Bird-day

Here's my card for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Yes, it's another birthday card, but like I said, I was running low!

Happy Bird-Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
The flamingo from Reverse Confetti's Fabulous Flamingo set is the star of the show here.  I stamped the flamingo's body using pink pigment ink, then cut the stamped pieces out using the matching dies.  After stamping the flamingo legs on a white panel, I used foam tape to position the body pieces on top.  The "happy bird-day" sentiment" was stamped to the left of the image in darker pink ink.  I probably should have stamped the flamingo legs a little further to the right . . .

To fill out the panel, I placed a pale pink cardstock strip near the left edge of the panel.  For some sparkle, I added a super narrow strip of silver glitter tape just next to the pink cardstock.  A trio of silver sequins arranged around the flamingo added a final festive touch.  I adhered the finished panel to a coordinating pale pink card base.

Materials Used:
Fabulous Flamingo stamp set, Fabulous Flamingo dies (Reverse Confetti); Memento Luxe Angel Pink, Rose Bud, and Gray Flannel inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Pink Pirouette cardstock (Stampin' Up!); silver glitter tape (Target); silver sequins; foam tape
