Flamingo fun

So, I usually google photos of an animal before I color it.  Glad I did with this flamingo -- I was surprised to learned they are darker on the belly and the back/wings area is often whitish.
This is just a fun little bird-day card  featuring a flamingo image from I Heart Stamps. You'll note it is a very fashion-conscious flamingo wearing a stylish polka-dot scarf (thanks to the fine point end of a brush-tip marker). The sequins make it quite festive, eh?

This card is for these challenges:

  4. Very cool and yes, very stylish! I was always confused as to why 'flamingo pink' was so orangey. Um... because flamingoes are. Well, then.
