Pop of Paradise - a dapper flamingo



Is it possible to make a masculine card using the fabulously frivolous Pop of Paradise? And is it possible to make a masculine card using a colour called Flirty Flamingo? Well I’ll let you decide, but I am toying with the idea of sending this card to a man.

I don’t know why but flamingoes and top hats and monocles seem to go together. Am I missing something? But when I saw the flamingo, I instantly wanted to dress him up like a dapper gent.  Once I’d done that, with one of the hats from Guy Greetings and swirl of a Project Life pen, it seemed there was little else to be done, so I framed the image in black, mounted it on a card and left it at that. What do you think?

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
