Life is Good!



Hello!
Don't you just love pink???? I sure do! 
And you can't get much pinker than a flamingo!

This is a S-card. You cut the card base for an A2 card, then fold the front panel to the left, therefore making an S shaped card. And it looks like this when opened.

Inside:

The flamingo was cut with the Life is A Beach Cricut cartridge.
I used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge to cut my scalloped oval shapes. The ones on the front are just a tad larger to hide the ones on the inside when it is folded.  Splitcoast Stampers has an excellent tutorial for this type of card. The fun sentiments are from the island2visit (SOL) stamp set.
I added tiny black buttons for some aded details.

I'm gonna enter this card for a few challenges asking for beachy/summer themes.
I think a pink flamingo fits that description!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I've never tried an S-card, but it's so cute the way the flamingo stand out from the front panel! So pretty in pink!
