Again I'm starting out with a CAS card.


I used one of the humorous sentiments from today's set.   Pink, red, and yellow -- definitely a Hawaiian shirt!

My second card is a Joy Fold card. There was lots of masking on this card -- something I really love doing.
 

That color combination always feels so retro!

Like the whimsy Flamingos. Did you know that a Flamingo gets its pink color from the food it eats.
