Be Yourself

This card is 5"x7." I used plain white cardstock for the base of the card. I layered on a piece of green cardstock that I embossed with the Polka Dots embossing folder. I left the bottom two inches un-embossed. I put a piece of ribbon around it and then tied a bow and attached it on. The white squares are 2"x2" and matted with pink and purple that are 1/8" larger. The flamingos are cut at 2" and are from Life is a Beach. I used my Gypsy and the hide contour feature to not make the cuts on the beak. I used a pen to doodle on the beak. I used a Fiskars stamp for the sentiment and then added some bling to finish it all off. This one is for a few challenges:
