Birthday wishes flamingo style

Hand Stamped Sentiments - Challenge #294
Always Happy Birthday - July challenge - Optional birthday cake
Traumfabrik - The Beach
Cards in Envy - On the Beach

This background was created by making tiny squares with a ruler and then watercoloring each square and letting each square dry before moving onto the next color. I learned this in an online watercolor class last week with Kristina Werner. It was a really fun class and we learned so much!! You can still sign up for her class here, even though its past the time we did it. You can take the class whenever you want.

Oh, my! I love this card!! I have never seen a flamingo in flip flops before and this one is great! The background really draws you into this bright summer card. Thank you for playing with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments and really hope you can join us again soon.

You have created a totally fabulous card that fits the inspiration board perfectly. Your watercolored background even remind me of the inspiration board and I want to case it big time. Thanks for linking up with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

Such a fun card - I'd love to know is the background coloured or paper? Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week - your card is spot on for our challenge.
