Flamingo Happy Summer card

This is the last of this year's Happy Summer/Happy 4th of July combo cards. If you care to take a gander, you can see the others in the series by clicking on the link: Porky Ready to Grill, Beach Scene freebie, and Beach Crab.

This was one I whipped up in a hurry. As you can see there's no coloring. This image was included in a Max Bringmann/Folio paper pad picked up in Aldi. I carefully used a die to center and cut the image then used my Zutter round-it-all tool to round the corners of all the papers, which are also Max Bringmann. I'm sorry there's no link for the paper, but unfortunately these are the rare paper pads I can't seem to find online links to.

These banner stickers went so well they look like they were made for it.

Supply List
Paper and image – cardstock, Max Bringmann patterned paper pad
Dies – Die-namics square stax
Embellishments – banner stickers
