Flamingo Dragon

So the whole time Flirty Flamingo was an In Color, I couldn't really figure out what to do with it, but all of a sudden since we found out it's joining the regular color lineup I keep using it.  And today I have a pink dragon!

I love love love this stamp set.  And happily for me, the Cupcake Inspiration challenge is to make a card with a magical creature on it!  Also, how gorgeous is that silver washi tape?  I almost never buy washi tape because I forget that I have it.  Yep, I've had that tape for months and this is the first time I've used it.

Take a look at the Just Add Ink inspiration photo:

I took the aqua, pink, and yellow tones in this picture and translated them as Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, and Crushed Curry.

Finally, here's this week's sketch challenge from the Paper Players:

That red bar would be a great place for a sentiment, but I couldn't find one I wanted to use that fit in that space, hence the washi tape.  Inside it says I hope you have a magical day.

Ryan is getting antsy so I'm going to go get him some Cheerios.   Hope you have a magical day!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Magical Day, Magical Mermaid
Ink:  Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Crushed Curry

Fun card, great inspiration! That DSP kind of reminds me of a dragon's breath....all aflame! I forget about washi too! Thanks for playing with my sketch at the Paper Players this week!
