Flamingo Wedding

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new email follower :o)

I've got a wedding card to share with you today, using the Flamingos from the 'A little bit sketchy' range by Sheena Douglass.

I stamped onto Crafters Companion watercolour card with Black archival ink and coloured the image with sparkle pens and a damp paintbrush:
Lilac, Hot Pink , Cobalt, Holly Leaf, Lemon.

After cutting the image into a circle shape with a large x-cut die  I stamped the names on using the Retro Alphabet stamps from MSE.

Other ingredients:
 Anemone 'Perfect Partners' stamps by Sheena Douglass and matching dies
sentiment printed from computer (Papyrus font)
'Always and Forever Solids' 8x8 paper from Lili of the Valley/Nitwit (retired)
Pink gems

Close up of the sparkle:

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
As You Like It Challenge favourite pink or blue and why - pink - I never liked pink as a girl but it has definitely grown on me and I find myself using pink quite often on cards. It's so pretty :D
