Warm Flamingo Wishes

Our late-Spring weather has been lovely, but the humidity is slowing creeping up along with the temperature, so I decided to make a "cool" card.

The flamingo is from a Recollections stamp/die set. I cut the legs separately in order to turn them around to make it look like the flamingo is ice skating. I hand-drew the legs & tiny skates. The scarf is a piece of seam binding from Paper Sweeties.

The scenic embossing folder is one of my favorites; I got it for a steal at a yard sale. I used the top portion for the front flaps.

I used a page protector & my Fuse tool to create the shaker portion. The blue & pink sequins came with a Fuse kit & I added some snowy Flowersoft.

The sentiment (Marianne Designs) was stamped in Tumbled Glass distress ink. I added three sequins with Glossy Accents. The "lake" is made with a blue rubber tourniquet.
