CCEE1925: Pink Day is ..... flamboyant!

Hello friends!

Did you know that a group of flamingos is called a flamboyance?

 A group of flamingos is, most amazingly, called a flamboyance. 
They are such fun, graceful birds with a quiet understanding 
so it's quite something that they have such a name :)

Lois is our hostess for the month of June at the CCEE Stampers blog
and her theme this week:  Think Pink!

This Sunday (June 23) is National Pink Day.  
Easy challenge - make a pink card.

You may have noticed, it's Lawn Fawn week on my blog!
My son, before leaving for camp, chose a letter from a jar for me and it was "L"
so I've challenged myself to use my Lawn Fawn stamps to make cards.
Starting tomorrow, it's a free-for-all and lots of different stamps get to play!

For this card, I've used the set flamingo together and the matching dies
as well as distress inks/blending tools and a background die for this card.
I've actually paired together two different background panels - 
one white, one pink 
and layered them just slighty askewed to have a tiny white peeking 
through for 'dramatic effect' :)
I blended with Ranger blending tools and distress inks and an elbow work out!

This is the 6th day of the challenge and the 5th card I've made.
Remember, the premise of The Daily Marker with Kathy Rac is to color
for about 10 minutes a day.

You can see what all the teammates have created by heading to the blog.
You can also link up your PINK cards, too!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
