Celebrate with Flamingos

Monday, May 25, 2015

Hello everyone!
Happy Memorial Day!
I would like to take a minute to salute to those who have fought for this country, and their families. Their bravery and courage will never be forgotten.....

Now back to the card making world...;-) 

I got this cute flamingo set from Newton's Nook a couple weeks ago, and had been dying to play with it! 
I've noticed that flamingos are on trend now... I was clothe shopping for my kids and there are a lot of flamingos for girls, so cute!

I heat embossed this flamingo couple with Calypso Coral emboss powder on the Blushing Bride cardstock, don't they look so lovely!? I decided to die cut with a heart, then I wanted to make my very first shaker card with the Fuse Tool. 
I inserted the flamingos and some sequins in a binder pocket, and went around the heart with the fuse tool. It was my first time using it and had to practice a bit, but it was so much fun! 

The confetti and the sentiment are both from Winnie & Walter. 
The flamingo couple looks so happy and in love, I wanted to celebrate love :-) 
I've been thinking about sending cards to my husband at work, that would surprise him a lot! So this card might be the first love card to him...;-)
