Flamingos in Love

see the flamingo charm?  click on the photo to enlarge it
The flamingos are in love and I am in love with the flamingos.  This stamp was a "thank you" from Taylor of Taylored Expressions.  TE recently had a design team call, sadly I was not picked but I received this stamp for applying.  It was totally unexpected and very generous of her.  So I have used the stamp for this week's Taylored Expressions sketch challenge.
I feel like a fish out of water.  My sewing machine has a problem.  I thought it was fixed but was wrong.  My cards look so naked to me without machine stitching.  It's funny because a couple years ago I couldn't be bothered with machine stitching.  But I digress...
Here's the deets:
stamp - Taylored Expressions "Flamingos in Love"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - Stampin' Up "Melon Mambo" cs and "Razzleberry Lemonade" dsp; Neenah Classic Crest Natural white cs
miscellaneous - copics; gelly roll glaze pen; satin ribbon; linen twine; flamingo charm; pink pearls; Nesties circle die

Here's the challenges:
Taylored Expressions TESC143 - sketch
Simply Create #49 - Favorite Animal
Charisma Cardz #31 - Bingo (circles, ribbon, charms)
L'il Red Wagon #92 - Put a Critter on It
