Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #33 Flamingo Pink

Its Friday so that means its time for another Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge!  This week the theme is to use flamingo pink, or flamingos, or both.  This is what I came up with:

I started this flamingo image from Squgglefly.  I kept the colouring simple, and fussy cut the image when done.  I chose coordinating card stock, trimmed everything to size and inked it with light brown ink. I particularly love the kraft paper with printed script. I used it to mat the pink doily paper but I tried to keep the border wide enough that you could still see the script.  I adhered the pieces to form the main panel.

I was going to adhere the flamingo image right on the base panel, but I decided to back it with a jounalling block from a sticker booklet that comes from the same collection as one of the patterned papers.  so that it was easier to layer I backed the block with white cardstock and trimmed it out.

Once I added ribbon to the main panel I adhered the panel to the card front and foam taped the image piece over the ribbon.  I added the bow and the big flower.  The big flower had been made out of white poster paper and then misted.  I added an inked sentiment sticker to the bottom of the card, and added the small flower stickers diagonally across the card front.

For the center I added an inked piece of white and a few more inked stickers.
