Friday Flashback: Tickled Pink

Heyyy I'm finally here with the Friday Flashback!  It's been a little crazy this week with prepping for tomorrow's garage sale.  Hope we sell lots of stuff and then I can use the money for new stamps :D  But today is all about the old stamps!  Usually the Friday Flashback retired stamp set choice is totally random, but I have to admit today I saw a color challenge and nothing would do but Tickled Pink.  So that's what I'm sharing today!

Also features Polka Dots & Petals, Very Punny, Pink Flamingo wheel

I made this for a long-ago Splitcoast challenge to be inspired by fashion.  Yep, those are some super fashionable pajama pants!

I still miss Green Galore and Gable Green.  But hey, we just found out that we're getting two new green In Colors!  Which is actually annoying some people, because we need more purples (true statement), but I do love me some green.

As much as I love these flamingos, those are the only two projects from the archives.  I tried a couple times to do a flamingo-licious layout in a baby book but the mamas weren't having it.  Party poopers.  But I made a new flamingo card today!

The inside of the card is stamped with Happy Bird Day! from the other large flamingo stamp in the set.  This bird just happened to be facing the right direction for the sketch.  And here is the Color Throwdown challenge that, to me, demanded flamingos:

I used Regal Rose, Old Olive, and Coastal Cabana (though Tempting Turquoise might have been a leetle bit closer to the shade shown in the swatch).  I also used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

And now I have to go work on garage sale stuff again (especially since the hubs just got home).  Wish me luck tomorrow!

Supplies, last card only:
Stamps:  Tickled Pink
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight
Paper:  Regal Rose, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Fresh Prints...of Bel Air DSP (I can't help it)
Accessories:  Note tag punch, Dimensionals, retired In Color brads
