Fabulous Flamingo and Double Scallops

I fell in love the Fabulous Flamingo set that Reverse Confetti released last week.    I think they are absolutely charming.  They have wonderful, graceful curves, yet still manage to keep that bold look that Reverse Confetti is so good at.  (Laurie actually turned them into swans. Such a simple change, but so creative!)

Happy Bird-Day

I also picked up the Double Edge Scallop Border because I remembered something that Sarah did by simply using double-sided paper and folding the border over.  I would have assumed that the die was just a convenient way to have two different scallop sizes and I would only have used half of the die-cut as a scallop border.  I so admire other people's creativity, but it always costs me money  Laurie put me over the top with her flamingo/swans and Sarah put the scallop border on my list even though I already have a full collection of other scallop border dies!)

  • Stamps: Reverse Confetti Fabulous Flamingo
  • Ink: Hero Arts Fresh Peach, Charcoal
  • Paper: Carta Bella Hello Again
  • Accessories: Reverse Confetti Fabulous Flamingo dies, Double Edge Scallop border die and Perfectly Paisley dies, Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle die, Pretty Pink Posh 4 mm sparkling clear sequins

Love your card with scalloped borders. Simple but very effective, love the effect!
Great bird too. :-)
