Pink Flamingo xx

Sorry I've not been around much again I really do need a good kick up the bum!!!! Had no mojo over the last few days and not even been looking at the blogs.  My depression seems to be giving me more bad days then good at the moment, even my new clean craft room holds no appeal! lol

Anyway a card today after receiving my Sir Stampalot order with this divine "Art Deco Miami" paper in just love it the flamingos look fabulous and so perfect with the stamp.
Had a right job with the pinks and was so annoyed as the edges kept leaking so in the end out came the scissors. Colourd as always with my pro markers.
Love the paper looks so yummy with the pink and aqua card I have used! The White oval I have distressed with spun sugar and added liquid pearls around the edges.
Found out this fan fan shaped Martha Stewart punch which I have had for years but so perfect now as its looks like a shell added some nice big pearls, mesh ribbon, cotton twine and this lovely compass charm.
A closer look at these papers and now you can see I have also distressed the edges and inked them.
Final picture where you can see all the lovely detail even though it did take a while as I was annoyed with the colours leaking I love the overall card.

The challenges I am entering are:

Midweek Magnolia's  -  Flowers
Party Time Tuesday  -  Two or more ribbons
Oldie but Goldie  -  Dies & punches
Paper Sundaes  -  Ribbon & Pearls
Joanna Sheen  -  Flower Power

Well hope to be back later to view all your fabulous creations right now I have had to buckle and will be doing the ironing the pile.  It's is getting so big now and nothing suitable left in my wardrobe to wear and even though I know my DH is mad at me but just gives me one of those looks I know its now time to do it!!!!  lol

Have a great week.

Love & Hugs Chanelle xxx
