The Tropics

Tuesday Throwdown challenge #399 is The Great Outdoors.
It is surely hot enough and humid enough in my part of the country to feel like the tropics--without the ocean breeze!
If you can't visit the great outdoors on a tropical island maybe you can catch the flamingos at the zoo. I am always fascinated by how flamingos can balance themselves on one skinny leg.
In my background, I used an old unbranded fern stamp along with leaves from SU Botanical Blossom  set. The die cut flowers are from the same set. The flamingo is by Stampabilities. colored with SU Blenders, and adding some Pool Party blue so it looks like the flamingo is standing in a puddle. I used an oval die to cut out the flamingo.

  1. Great, summery card. I really like all the foliage you added behind your oval. I always wonder about those flamingos, too. Do you think they can still balance on one leg when they're elderly?
