Happy Bird-day

Today's clean and simple card is for the July Reverse Confetti Color Challenge. The colors of coral, aqua and lime seemed perfect to go with the new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. I stamped the flamingo body with Stampin' Up Crisp Cantaloupe ink, the eye/beak and legs with Simon Says Black and the wing with Stampin' Up Blushing Bride. I fussy cut out the legs but used the matching Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts to cut out the body and wings. I attached it to the scalloped piece cut with the Love Note die from Berrylicous cardstock and then layered it with the diagonal piece cut from white cardstock with the Pretty Panels die. I added the double hearts cut using the smaller  heart from the Love Note set from patterned paper scraps and then layered with a coral button tied with Hemptique cord. After stamping the sentiment directly onto card base, I added a scattering of sequins topped with pearls around the sentiment and the double hearts.
