Fancy Flamingos



Hi everyone!  Just a heads up to let you know that today's release day at Doodle Pantry.  Laurie has released 8 fabulous new digital sets, a new template/SVG, and 4 Color Plus sets of previous released images.  In addition,  there's a 25% off sale going on now through May 6, excluding gift certificates.

For today's release, I am thrilled to showcase Fancy Flamingo.  This  new set includes both colored and outline images, as well as digi papers and sentiments.  For my card above, I  combined 2 outline images and a sentiment from the set to make an anniversary card.  Coloring was done with Copics and colored pencils.  I also added some Spirelli string art around the scallop die cuts.

All patterned papers are from my scrap bin, including the flower, which I made for another project and never used. It feels so good to recycle some of the many leftover bits and pieces I've been saving.  Gotta do this more often!

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge -- Going Green (All patterned paper and handmade flower were recycled from my scrap bin.)
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #121 -- Perfect Papers (Use at least 3 different patterned papers.)
Outlawz Monday Greeting Card Challenge April 29 -- Anything Goes include sentiment
The Cutie Pie Challenge #43 --  Cute with Lots of Layers
Digi Makeover Challenge #86 -- Celebrations (Must use a digi.)
Party Time Tuesday PTT 118 -- Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Challenge #84 -- Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!!
