Newton's Nook: Day 3 of July Reveals

It's day three of the July Release reveals at 

Newton's Nook Designs!

Today we are featuring the set called "Flirty Flamingos"

This set will be given away to two lucky winners, so stop by the 

Newton's Nook Blog to leave a comment!

 I cheated a bit on this card and stamped the flamingos onto a light pink cardstock
and then shaded with a darker pink :)  

 After cutting out the flamingos, I added them on top of the image that I
also stamped onto the pink/kraft paper.  And I love the font/handwriting with
this stamp set!  So cutely done!
Papers and pearl heart are by Doodlebug Design
