Be a Flamingo

Another weekend is approaching! It will be a busy one for us. Tomorrow night we have tickets to the The Piano Guys. This will be our third concert with them. Just a fun evening. If you've never heard or seen them check our Peponi. I enjoy all their videos but this is one of my favorite. The scenery is gorgeous! We are having dinner with our friends on Saturday evening and then Sunday we'll get ready for our grandson's funeral service and burial on Monday. You can read Alex's story if you haven't seen it previously.
My card tonight is for my son in Boston. He's starting a new job on Monday and won't be able to be here. I won this new set from Beccy's Place last month called Feathered Friends and I've been dying to use it.

The bird images and the sentiments just cracked me up. 

I used the pre-colored image of the flamingo but I added the shadow with Copic maker. I layered the 5x5 square card with a black layer on the white base. And then I added some sequins for some embellishments. And the inside?

I used another pre-colored bird and this time fussy cut him to add to the sentiment that was from Create with TLC. The sentiment was die cut with Spellbinders ATC dies ad backed with pink card stock. I really like this one. I hope Dan get s a kick out of it too.
I am entering these challenges:

That's my card for today. Hope your week is on the down swing and you are getting ready for the weekend. Have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by today.
