“Flamingo Christmas” Thank You Card

Unexpected but how lovely is a flamingo for Christmas?  Dustin at Doodle Dragons Studio comes up with some wonderful characters.  It is no secret I love his work.  Love how the front of the card is a card on its own with a tag inside.  The rose or flower is made from 8 one inch circle punches with a gem brad in the center and stickles for more bling.
