Things that Fly - Allsorts #769

 Liz has chosen our optional theme at Allsorts this week...

Things that fly.

It wasn't until I had finished this card, using magazine freebies, that I thought I ought to check to see if flamingoes fly. Turns out they do...phew!!

This is actually a teeny weeny card and I had great fun making it. Once more, the stamp is a discovery from when I was having a work room revamp. I am certain the set was free with a magazine. One of those that very nearly hit the "cull" pile!!I inked the leaves in different greens for the background and the coloured and fussy cut flamingo was raised up on top. 

Prizes from AALL and Create and Aldridge Crafts

I hope you have a lovely weekend xx

Beautiful card Sarah, lovely design. I wouldn’t have known if flamingoes fly either. We often visit a nearby Wetlands Centre where there are dozens of flamingoes, but I’ve never seen any fly.

They certainly do fly, remember being undeneath when several took off in Florida, quite a spectacle. Perfect sentiment for a Flamingo.

Love a flamingo and this one is great against the leafy background. I have that sentiment it is from a Crafters Companion mag.

Hi Sarah,
yes Flamingoes defintely do fly but as your card states they look more beautiful standing on one leg and you can enjoy their fab colours that way.
Love your wonderful card and brilliant stanped background.
Beautiful cutting out of the Flamingo.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Tee hee Sarah
I didn't know whether flamingos could fly either .. .. but I suppose there is no point in having wings if you can't fly!
Love this very much. The sentiment is brilliant.
Sorry, but I am very behind with my commenting .. .. but am here at last!
Hope you had a good weekend.
Love Jules
