Pink Flamingo Decked out for Christmas

I have a friend who absolutely HATES pink flamingos, so when I saw this digi image I knew I had to make a card for her as a gag! LOL I'm sorry, the artist didn't add a name to this free digi image, so if anyone knows who created this, please let me know and I'll edit the post to give credit where it's due.
I ran a piece of metallic pink card stock through the Big Kick with a Sizzix snow globe embossing folder, and then colored it with red & green Copics to match the image. The image was matted with green galore, and the "jingle jingle" sentiment was computer generated and punched with a tiny tag punch. I added a tiny jingle bell to the Santa hat he's wearing, which is why I decided to go with jingle jingle for the sentiment. I know this will make her laugh, because every year for her birthday or Christmas she gets something with a pink flamingo just for fun!
I hope you're enjoying your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!


EDIT - Thanks to Marlene for letting me know this is a Digital Delights image by Louby Loo......and most likely retired.

Carol...this is SO cute! Not sure who that image is by but it's adorable! Love the pretty colors on your embossing! Super cute and your friend will love it even if she isn't fond of flamingos.

I'm pretty sure that's an old Digital Delights by Louby Loo image. (Not sure if it's been retired.) :) It's such a fun card!

Me was called Winter Pink Flamingo. I don't see it in their store anymore, so it's either been retired or moved to one of their DVD collections.

I did a shaker card with this image last year. You can see it here:

Your friend will make you think, jingle, jingle. Too Funny. That is a real cutie, though. Good job doing that folder in pink, red, and green. Your card is just adorable and fun.
