Strut your flamingo stuff

I LOVE the "Tropical party" stamp set from Skull and Croos Buns. It is so  fun and I feel like I can use the stamp set for almost every occasion and for both feminine and male cards and for everything in between.

For this DT-card I chose the girliest of the girly approach and created a flock of flamingoes strutting their flamingo stuff on their way to a party. Btw. have you seen this movie clip of the dancing flamingoes! That's strutting for you!

Ahem...back to the card. I stamped the flamingoes using masks on a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and rubbed a little bit of blue distress ink by their feet to imply water. I then colored the flamingoes using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers (Who is responsible for this extremely long name on the markers?) I blended several of the colors to create shades of pink and purples. I then coated them with a layer of Wink of stella glitter pen. to make them even more ready to party.

I then diecut the flamingoes to a circle using a stitched circle die and matted this wit two more circles (a glittery silver one and a hot pink one), 

I then diecut a white stitched rectangle panel and matted this using silver glitter cardstock. Before I glued my circle panel on the rectangle panel I stamped 6 leaves where I knew the circle was going to make them peak out from behind the panel.

And then I popped up the circle on the leaves before I stamped the sentiment. Both the leaves and sentiment is also from the "Tropical party" stamp set. To finish the card I glues the whole panel on a white card base and found a couple of "dew drops" that I scattered around the front of the card.
