Stoppin' to Smell the Roses!

Hello, I made this for this weeks Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT96.

Ramon is a flamingo still on the lam after flying the coop and leaving the Sedgwick County Zoo behind, with his good Buddy Gustav!

In their travels, Gustav met the love of his life! So now Ramon is on his own. He's decided to continue on, with the hope that his true love is out there somewhere. But until that time comes, he's going to take time to stop and smell the roses! lol

I made Ramon with punches, Body: 2 step bird punch with beak cut off
Head: 2 step bird wing, 1 pink, 1 white, trim white to shape
Neck: EK swirl flourish punch

This was my first attempt at the paper roses made with the big flower punch from SU. I used this fantastic tutorial by Julie Wiliams.

Stamps: None
Paper: chocolate chip, old olive, so saffron, regal rose, white, Basic grey Sugared
Ink: so saffron, apricot appeal, pretty in pink, old olive,
Acessories: oval/scallop nesites, Big flower punch SU, fiskars mint punch (leaf), 2 step bird punch, EK swirl flourish punch, dimensionals, sponges, ribbon

Have a Great Day!
