AAA Cards Challenge #146: Made in Minutes + Summer

This fortnight our challenge is Made in Minutes with the optional twist of Summer.

Our Sponsor is STAMPlorations.

For my quick cards I like to either stamp a solid image, or go through my image bank, of precoloured or assembled diecuts "bank".
The flamingo is from Marianne Design col1456 and the sentiment is from Marianne Design too KJ1714. I stamped it with Memnto ink Dandelion and Cantaloupe for the ombre effect.

For me the flamingo is the epitome of summer, the tropics I suppose.
I diecut  all it's parts from colored cardstock, hadn't used it yet.

I thought to add a few of stamped hibiscus flowers from the same stampset, but it is a CAS challenge , so nope...
I did try a blue panel as a sea backdrop but all the colors I have made the flamingo look sickly.

It literally took me less than five minutes to make thiscard, but you can take your time if you play along, not days but a little more time ;-)
