How cute is this flamingo! I love this set, Flamingos on Vacation, and all you can do with it. It has some great sentiments and images. Isn't she stylin' in this  outfit? Of course, I thought she could use some ruffles. She also needed some blue gemstones and a pretty flower, too.

Today is the final day of the blog hop. Good luck to all!!!

Like the Flamingo card with the layering using the MS punch around the page for ruffles. Did you know that a Flamingo gets its pink color from the food it eats.
