Daring Card Makers - Elemental Inspiration

It's Friday so time for another Daring Card Makers challenge!  As its the first Friday of the month it's time for an elemental inspiration and here is the inspiration:

And here is the card I made using the colours, hearts and the flamingo.

I treated myself to a daylight lamp over Christmas and wondered why I never got one before as its given me so much extra time to craft in the evenings especially as its been dark a fair few hours by the time I get home from work in an evening!  And as it happened, this little flamingo die popped into my shopping basket too and as it was only a few pound it was fine!

It's an X Cut die and I've layered the wings and added an eye plus heavily glittered the middle flamingo and added the scarf and boots too.  Each flamingo I coloured with promarkers as I didn't have enough range of pinks in scrap card to use.  The sentiment is handwritten.

The card blank I made especially to fit some envelopes that were originally with a set of Christmas cards that I bought a few years ago in the sales - I buy these just for the envelopes!

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
