Okay, That's Better

After yesterday's misfire, I decided to go back to the flamingo since I'd made a card with it that I liked lately and I thought maybe it would be good luck.  So here's what I have today:

I do like it a heck of a lot better than yesterday's mess.  Here's the latest from Freshly Made Sketches:

I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut a circle out of some scratch paper, and then used the negative as a mask for my card.  I really thought about adding some stripey Melon Mambo DSP to the card, but in the end I decided to stick to the sketch and I added some of those Metallic Enamel Shapes.  They're not exactly where I wanted them, but those little boogers are sticky.

Just had to play along at What Will You Stamp? again:

I wasn't going to buy that stamp set at first, but I'm glad that I got it on a whim because I have had fun playing with it (except for yesterday).  Well, I'm off to go work on the next scrapbook layout and spend some time in the basement with little Vader man.  Cheers!

Stamps:  Pop of Paradise, Sunshine Sayings
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White

I DO like that. I think the thing with yesterday's post was the color combo, to tell you the truth. So I really like this one!
