Flamingo Toes & Last Day for Chance to Win

Aloha everyone!!!

I hope your day was absolutely fantastic, or at least very close to it!

Today is the last day to comment (by midnight Hawai'i time, 10 pm Pacific time, 7 pm Eastern time). I will draw winners and post them tomorrow! Excited? I am!

The thing is this -- When I visit stamp companies, blog hops, or other stamping giveaways, the chances to win anything is so very small. They usually pick one winner out of hundreds or over a thousand entries. And the winner sometimes gets something nice and small or a giant giveaway. Most everyone else has little to no chance of winning. And if it is a creation entry prize, well MY chances go down even more LOL!!! That is why I have few entries here but three prizes given away. Isn't that waaaay funner? Ok. Moving on :)

Today's card is for a friend who absolutely loves pink flamingos!!! I mean she LOVES pink flamingos! The more the merrier.

Remember VersaMark "Dazzles?" Most of us use regular VersaMark but don't know what to do with the Dazzles, at least for me. I thought of a "tone on tone" look for white cardstock (the background here). I sprinkled some glitter onto it but it only stuck to a small area because it dried fast while I was distracted by the chickens. Yes. They scream for me under the lanai until I throw some seeds down - like right now. BRB.

Now I love Dazzles and look forward to creating different backgrounds for a tone-on-tone look. If you've pushed it into the back of your stash, I hope this gives you reason to bring it out and start stamping with it for a soft image or a soft background!
