Just Us Girls #354 - Wild Card: "Let's Hear it for the Girls!"

There's a new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  It's our Wild Card challenge and Nancy wants us to make a "girly" card.  Pink is girly, right?
 
I chose three shades of pink to create my card today.  The flamingo is a layering stamp, so I used the Mini Misti to help me stamp it correctly.  It also allowed me to stamp it a couple of times to get even coverage.  The background was stamped in the three pink colors as well.  The flamingo was die cut after stamping and also die cut from fun foam for dimension.  I stamped the sentiment, added the crystals, and rounded the corners. 
 
I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch as my starting point.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest, Carol, on the JUGs blog.  This is Carol's last week guesting with us, and we'd like to thank her for joining us with her fabulous creations.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

FLAMINGO! *fist pump* Your pretty, layered flamingo is gorgeous, especially set against the backdrop of the paintbrush strokes. Gorgeous! Aren't the HA layered stamps/dies fun? I'm hoping to add the pineapple to my collection at some point! Thank you soooooo much for the opportunity to join the fabulous team this month; a highlight of my crafting career in every way! You’ll for sure see me playing along in the gallery!
