Today I'm part of an Instagram hop ~
click on the link and it will take you there
and I thought I'd share my card here on my blog, too!
We are all one humanity and should find a way to #showup for equity and equality in a way that makes sense for YOU.
In the smallest of ways, including creating a card and adding a hashtag can help to promote unity among papercrafters!
For my card, I wanted to do something a little different.
Rather than be 'stuck in one box' and being traditional,
I'm sharing a card with flamingos that are NOT pink.
Rather, they are the skin tones that show from black to white
to all the colors in between, we STAND together.
I've used a variety of distress oxide inks for the background
and used my scrapbook.com domed blender foams to blend them.
When I tell you I'm obsessed with these ... I am!
Next up, I've used Lawn Fawn's Flamingo Together and Life is Good
to create the beach sunset scene.
I chose this as my background to represent where I live - Miami, Florida.
We live in a melting pot of cultural diversity with many colors,
languages and cultures!
I speak both Spanish and English daily!
Thanks for stopping by
and remember - love one another!
Wonderful card, and glad to see the very worth cause. Racism is a BIG no-go, and we must all hope and pray that it can be stopped! Hugs, ValerieReplyDelete

What a wonderful card Kelly, and for a brilliant cause too, especially with what's happening right now in your country, having said that, racism is rife in the UK too, so disgusting. Anyhoo, I love your bright and beautifully created card, the flamingo images are fabulous, Kate xReplyDelete
