February Elemental Inspiration

Hello everyone.
Its my turn to host the challenge over at Daring Cardmakers and as its the first Friday of the month its time for a new Elemental Inspiration challenge.
I have picked the image below and perhaps it will help you get inspired for valentines.
Please remember to pick 3 elements from the image and hop over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog and link up your entry.
For my card I picked the colours, flamingo, foil, heart and letters.

I started by creating my layout with some designer paper from Stampin Up.

I then die cut this little flamingo using the Shapeabilities Tropics Wild and Free Die Set from Debi Adams at Spellbinders.  I then coloured the flamingo  using a little bit of ink.

I cut out some letters to make the word "LOVE" using the Alphabet Die Set of the Month from Spellbinders.  I cut the letters using foil and glitter card.  I then added a couple of stickers from the June Card Kit of the Month also from Spellbinders.  I love this Alphabet Die Set as you can create any sentiment you want and the simple look of the font is fabulous.

I hope I have inspired you and Valentines doesn't have to be hearts and flowers, it can be flamingos instead.
Thanks for stopping by today and please check out the Design Team blogs over at Daring Cardmakers for more fabulous inspiration.
