Tickled pink Flamingo card with Streamers!

Tickled pink Flamingo card with Streamers by Jennifer Jackson |  Flirty Flamingos stamp set  | Newton's Nook Designs

Tickled Pink Monday! 

Happy Monday! Sometimes Mondays are rough so I'm hoping this fun pink card will help make you smile today! I used our new set, Flirty Flamingos, to create this fun little scene. I colored the flamingos on white cardstock with copic markers and added the hearts and the "tickled pink" sentiment above them. Then I added a few blue speckles around them to add a bit of beachy-ness! I also made a fun little ruffle using party streamers. I have some different bits of leftover streamers from parties lying around and it thought it would be fun to try to use them on a card!

Aren't the streamers super fun? I just kind of ruffled them up and added them on with some adhesive. I also added a bit of chevron washi tape and some pink and white bakers twine to finish it off. I know it's A LOT of pink - but I thought it turned out to be pretty cute!
