Flamingos & Wild Grass by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~ easel card !

Hi guys!
I have a couple cards (one an easel card) to share using the
newly released stamp called Flamingos & Wild Grass
  by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.

I think this stamp makes a beautiful easel card.
 Something different and super cute!
Card #1 ~ Easel card!
The basic formula for an easel card is to divide the length of your base by two
 and score. 
(This is the mid-point.)  Next, divide one side by two and score
 (This is the three-quarters point.)  Mine is 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" for base and 4 1/4" x
4 1/4" for card front.  Scored the base at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8" fold and you have
created am easel for the card front.
The card front is created by stamping the image on mixed media paper, colored
with Panpastels. The Mini Greetings 1 set (sentiment) and the
Walk by Faith (small birds) were added to the card front also.  A small notepad was
adhered for a personal greeting!!
Card #2 ~ card

This card is created using panpastels and stencils.The clouds were created using the
 Cloud stencil and an oval stencil.  I used the negative of the oval stencil to cover
 the area 
where the sky will be and shadowed in the oval
 area where the Flamingos will stand.  Then I used the positive
 of the oval stencil to cover the Flamingos and add the sky using
the cloud stencil. Added the sentiment to complete the card front.
  Both cards are held 
 together 3D foam squares by
Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L.
  Would love to see you join us over on the
