My card for today uses the Fabulous Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I played along with 2 challenges with this card.

Here is the sketch for Sunday Stamps 188.  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see the beautiful cards everyone has made and to play along too!

Here is the fun color challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge. Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see the beautiful cards made and to play along.

Here is my take on the 2 challenges.

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card front and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder using my Big Shot.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered it to the front of the Gorgeous Grape card base.

I then stamped the Flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo Photopolymer stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the 1st part using Flirty Flamingo Ink, full strength.  I then stamped the next part of the Flamingo using Flirty Flamingo Ink again, but I stamped off once to get the lighter pink color.  I stamped the outline of the Flamingo in Night of Navy Ink stamping off once to give it a softer look.  I stamped the water on the bottom from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Night of Navy stamping off once.  I stamped the palms from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set around the top and sides of the paper in Shaded Spruce Ink and Granny Apple Green Ink stamping both colors off twice.  I adhered the artwork to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Florish Thinlits Dies I cut the border piece out of a scrap of Night of Navy cardstock.  I cut a thin piece of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered it to the border piece using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine around the border and tied a small bow.  I adhered it to the card front at the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the Palms all around the inner liner in Shaded Spruce Ink and Granny Apple Green Ink stamping each color off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center.  I adhered the inner liner to a mat of Flirty Flamingo cardstock using Snail, then adhered it to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish off my card I stamped the Palms all around a Medium Whisper White Envelope in Shaded Spruce Ink and Granny Apple Green Ink stamping both inks off twice.  Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will give this card a try.  Happy Stamping!
