As promised, I am back with a Pink Flamingo creation. I made this card yesterday, but it has taken me until now to photograph it and edit it (mainly because I decided that while I was at it, I might as well take pics of the other 30 cards that hadn't been photographed yet!!).
Now this is much brighter than my normal colour palette...what a shame Summer Sun will be retiring in August. I call it "Sports Shirt Yellow" and I have to confess I will not miss it one bit!
I thought the sentiment "live like you mean it" was appropriate for these bright colours! I've covered the little heart in Crystal Effects to make it shiny. Speaking of the heart, there's one punch that I've left off my Materials List....can anyone guess how I made the heart? (hint: it's not what you might think!)
While you're thinking about it, check out Teneale's Pink Flamingo creation. She was even brave enough to use the bold patterns in the pack! (I cheated and used the more delicate prints!) Only Teneale could make those papers looks so good!
Edited to Add: I used the Trio Flower punch. The top of the heart is 2 petals, and I just snipped down in a "V". Easy, huh? You can get all different sized hearts using flower and scallop punches! It's a handy trick to have up your sleeve
