We Flamingo So Well Together

I won these cute dies and stamps from Di and have used them to make this card for the Cuttlebug Mania 'I {heart} you' challenge and the Alphabet Challenge 'Z is for Zoo Animals'.  I'm also popping over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop to show Di (and Sarn) what I've made!

Card blank: 6" x 6" white linen
Stamp: My Favorite Things 'Tickled Pink'
Dies: My Favorite Things Die-namics 'Flamingos', Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Kars Tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Card: Core'dinations Dark Pink (magazine freebie)
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Perfect Pair' (magazine freebie)
Snippets: Core'dinations dark pink card,  pale pink, grey and black matt card, white linen card

I trimmed the pink paper, layered it onto dark pink card and attached it to the card front.  I then die cut and embossed a circle from white linen card and attached it to a scalloped die cut which I had previously cut for another card and not used.  Then the fun began!  I die cut the flamingos from snippets of pale pink (body and beaks), dark pink (wings), grey (legs and beaks) and black (eyes) card and attached them to the circle.  I die cut a heart from dark pink card and placed it between the flamingos.  This circle was then attached to the card.  I stamped the sentiment onto white linen card, trimmed it to size, layered it onto dark pink card and attached it with Pinflair glue.
