i'm never one to shy away from bright colors or lots of embellishment at any time, but a fabulous flamingo stamp really does seem to need a bit of tropical excess, dontcha think? yeah. so did i. so i used up most of the smaller flowers from a pack of glittery diecuts and threw a few other bits and bobs on there to keep them company. on the journaling card i typed "thank you" in lots of different languages for an international flair, et voila!
