Be a Flamingo

Happy Saturday!
Hope everyone's weekend is going well!
I'm spending mine at our cabin up in the mountains
and decided to do a little crafting, even though
I have minimal supplies with me.

I do have my laptop, a printer and some white and black cardstock
and was able to put together this card using
a digital stamp, digital paper and sentiment from
Imagine That Digistamp.



I colored the flamingo with Spectrum Noir pencils and fussy cut.
The digital paper is included in the same set as the image and sentiment.
The flowers I used as embellishments are free clip art I found
online and added a little more color to with the pencils and fussy cut.

Minimal materials, cute card!
Maybe I don't need all those supplies I have at home after all!

Until next time,
Happy Crafting!
