CDS Sneak Peek - Critter Tails

Well it's officially after Christmas and I survived! There were moments that I thought I wouldn't and certainly moments were it was touch and go, but I made it! Now if only someone would come over and clean up the mess! lol

Now that Christmas is over it's time for the Clear Dollar Stamps team to be parading the new goods through our blogs for all to see :) This sweet flamingo is from a set called Critter Tails by Laurie Wilson and is due to be released on January 1st so mark your calendars!

I was having an unusual craving for some Spring weather when I made this card even though we have had some sunny and warm-ish weather here. I picked out these bright papers and paired them with this fun flamingo. The background of the bird was sponged and the bird itself was water coloured with Tombow Markers, cut out, made 3D and placed on top.

I think that this set made an adorable birthday card! I can't wait to use the alligator and crab that come with it :) If you would like to see what the entire set looks like, then please pop by the Clearly iStamp blog for a peek.
