This is a variation on a theme – this card to be precise. I wanted to have another go using the Pink Flamingo papers, which are very exciting actually. Very bright and cheerful.

Wish I'd given the bird a constrasting wing though.

  1. Gorgeous, I love these papers too, that little bird looks great covered in them and loving the sunlight effect :0)

  2. He is sooo cute Helen. May think again about chipboard! Kelly

  3. I have to say that this is not my favourite dp - and this is one of two sheets that are my least favourite. But seeing you use selected sections of it has made me look at it in a new light! This is a lovely card, and the dp looks great with the little bird sitting on top of it! Love the ribbon detail too.

  4. This is so fun - looks like rays of sunshine on the DSP! CC
