Flirty Flamingos (Newton's Nook)

Hi, everyone.  Here's an anniversary card I made for my brother and sister-in-law's anniversary next week.  I was lucky enough to win this Flirty Flamingos stamp set from Newton's Nook in a blog hop a couple of months ago and I am finally inking them up - isn't it adorable!  I decided to water-colour with my Tombows, which I haven't done for ages.  I even made a few ink splatters on the paper!

The colours in my photo are a bit off!  The pink in the patterned paper is the same pink as I coloured my flamingos, and the button is actually a dark plum colour, which really looks great with the plum patterned paper.  This card looks better in real life!  

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Patterned paper:  Momenta
  • Accents:  Peel-offs (Anita's), button, twine (stash)

Today is the last day to enter the sketch challenge over at Newton's Nook and I didn't want to miss it. Here's the sketch:
