Hosting BBTB2 This Week!

I am the host on Bitten By The Bug2 this week! I chose the flamingo cut from Life's a Beach, or any flamingo cut. The catch was to NOT make the flamingo pink. So, I cut my flamingo from a blue/green striped cardstock, backed with another flamingo cut from dark brown cardstock. I outlined the flamingo with a fine black pen and drew the facial features. I also drew the "fishnet" stockings (isn't that hilarious?). I attached her to the card with foam dots. I used a blue cardstock for the card and overlapped it three quarters of the width with dark brown cardstock. I used a border punch on the pink shoe cardstock for the eyelet edge. I cut out the shoes from Summer in Paris in various colors of glitter cardstock backed with dark brown and a teenie-beenie rhinestone. The sentiment is chipboard. I added a few premade flowers. Finally, I tied some ribbon onto a bronze glittery bobby pin and attached it to the upper left corner of the card. I hope you like! Please go check out the other designers takes on this week's challenge at BBTB2!
