Love this flamingo cut!

I have never used this flamingo cut from Life's a Beach before but I think it is the cutest thing!

This is a 'Hi' card that I am sending out for a Cricut Card Fairy mission. I am also posting this for challenges from Bitten By The Bug 2 - use a flamingo that is not pink, and Paper Cutz Challenge # 56 - use anything metal on your project.

Materials:
Flamingo cut is from Life is a Beach and mounted using pop dots.
I cut the black frame with Nestabilities Labels #8
The metal eyelets are from my stash
The 'Hi' embellishment is one that I had around, not sure where it came from but I thought the blue matched the background nicely.
My 'stitching' was done with a purple Sakura gel pen.
My base card is purple cardstock from Colorbok.
The colored background I made using a watercolor technique with Tim Holtz distressed inks. I also sprayed the background with Tattered Angels Gold.
The black paper is from Papertrey Ink.
