Here is my card again:

My oh my, I had fun getting all messy while making this mixed media card!  I started by dry brushing the Boho Bolds papers with white gesso and then distressing the edges.  I stamped the flamingos from the Tickled Pink set and colored each one with copics.  I cut them out with the coordinating Flamingos dies and then added them along with a Layering Heart over an Ornate Oval and an Oval die cut.  I also added a Pennant Flags die, a Beautiful Border and a couple of Bitty Borders.  I finished the front with seam binding and pink sequins.
Here is the inside:

This would make a great baby girl card!  

A closer look at the front:

Here is a second card from me:

For this card, I used the Aloha set.  After coloring the image, I cut it out with the coordinating Bird of Paradise die.  I tucked in some of the new Ferns and Tropical Leaves.  I also used the following dies: Fence, Circle Ornaments, Leaves and Branches, Bitty Borders, Pierced Ovals, Lattice Background.  The papers are from the Boho Bolds Collection.  I completed this card with a few rhinestones.

And that's it!
