Happy Monday - well, at least I hope it will be since I have weigh-in this morning, LOL! I tried to be good on vacation, but well, you know how that goes! So, today I am going to share a card I made for my SBS9 sister Kim-Marie's sketch challenge. Go and check out her blog Frog of Faith, the girl has great talent! Now, you will notice that I did indeed use contraband - I used another one of Melanie's adorable stamps, aren't these flamingos just the cutest??!! I can't decide whether I like the flamingos or the koalas better....or maybe the snakes, *teehee*. BUT, everything else on the card is Stampin' Up! I was going for a summery look for this card, and I think I achieved that! I added some bling to the wings and beak of my little birds for some added pop! And, of course I had to use my beloved jumbo eyelets, I just love those things!!! I will go into a deep, dark depression if they are on the retirement list!!! So, I will leave you with the recipe as I must get myself to WW for the weekly torture, I mean weigh-in! Wish me luck!!
