Lawnscaping Challenge -Off Kilter

Hi Friends, Today I have a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge Off Kilter #131 Challenge. We are to make something askew, off kilter or tilted on our card. I tilted my background panels for this one and added a cute Flamingo! 
Using orange paper was a bad choice for the background of the photo because you can't really see the card well. Opps. Can't redo the photo because this card was quickly given to a sweet young woman battling breast cancer, my Boss's daughter. 

This is a new set from Lawn Fawn from the last release. The inside has another flamingo and uses another sentiment from the set "I'll stand by you".

I searched Pinterest for a sketch with something off kilter and found this Freshly Made Sketch (below) and used as my starting point. I cut a few stitched rectangle panels with Lil Inkers dies then set about creating a tiny little scene within my MFT circle. I Copic colored the sand and Flamingo and stamped the palm trees. I added a few enamel dots from various packs and called it done. 

I am linking up to another challenge as well.

  2. Super cute, Kim! Love that darling flamingo, and your plaid background is absolutely delicious!

  3. I absolutely LOVE the sketch and the plaid paper and the darling flamingo! Your card shows up just fine, I think. I've always been fond of pink and orange together, anyway. I just bought a pad of Lawn Fawn plaid paper and it's just sitting there waiting for me...

  4. I LOVE your colorful pink flamingo! Adorable! Thanks for playing along with us this week over at House of Cards!
    Take Care!

  5. Super cute, Kim! Just got that stamp set...can't wait to ink it up!

  6. This is amazing, Kim! I adore the wonderful plaid paper you used--and the strip of texture is perfect! That flamingo is absolutely fab, too! Thank you for joining us at House of Cards! HUGS! :) Mynn xx

  7. How fun is this card Kim!! Your color choices are perfect for this challenge. Your plaid paper is an excellent choice and the colors are mimicked all over your card except for the spring green palms! Whimsical, fun, and it just makes me happy looking at! Thank you so much for joining us at House of Cards. This card was truly an inspiration.
