BBTB2-Life's a Beach-Flamingo Challenge



Happy Monday everyone! Today is another BBTB2 day and this week the DT was asked to used the flamingo cut from Life's a Beach, but we were also told to make this different and not use pink(since flamingos are all pink!). So I thought this would be a unique way of making a fun Halloween card! I love the end result, I think all the details work perfect together.  I'm super excited because I got myself an Irock, which is the coolest thing ever! I've been having so much fun adding bling to all my projects and believe it or not it's actually very cheap! I used it for the flourishes, the eye of the flamingo and on the flower.
I did a lot of inking on the embossed swirls to really make them pop more!
The sentiment comes from -A Haunting we will go- stamp set by Scrappy Mom's Stamps. I also inked around the edges of the orange flower, but wasn't too sure if I liked it that way..what do you think??

I looove this bling! I'm sure all of my projects will be covered in it now! LOL...And the itty bitty stars are cool too, I got those on sale at M's.

Well thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to check out BBTB2 for lots more inspiration from the talented DT girls!

**Make sure to come back tomorrow...I got the new Rock Princess cartridge and I have a super cute card for you all! :) Have a nice day!

P.S. Thank you everyone who participated in the Scrappy Mom's blog hop on Saturday! You all left the sweetest comments and you still have a chance to win a set of stamps! Just click HERE!

This is adorable! I saw the Irock @ M's & was tempted to get it but didn't. But I think I just might have to after seeing what you have done with it. Awesome job, also I like the inked flower.
