Bold and Bright Flamingos with NO Flamingos...

I saw the Bold and Bright challenge on "Ways to Use It" forum several days ago and I pulled out the Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! This pack of paper has sat on my desk just waiting for me to figure out how I wanted to use it. Well I saw the sketch challenge yesterday (picture at the top of the page), and I decided this was my chance to do both! So here it is.

So I punched out all these little circles from the designer paper, but the flamingos on the paper were too big for these 1" circles; thus, we have Pink Flamingo with NO flamingo.

The only thing stamped on this 5" square card is the little greeting at the bottom right from the new SU set Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Close to Cocoa. The circles are 1" punched from the Pink Flamingo paper. I then added LOTS of glitter and a glitter brad to the center flower. (My 20 yo daughter would be proud. She loves glitter.) HINT: To make a glitter brad, roll the head of your brad on a glue dot and then dip it in Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Easy, easy with fun results.

Each circle was attached to a Chocolate Chip cs scallop circle (Martha Stewart 1" scallop punch) and then adhered to the card with dimensionals. The Summer Sun pattern paper is also from Pink Flamingo. That was attached to a square of Chocolate Chip cs and then attached to the Whisper White cs base.

Here's a close up at a different angle.
