adventures with Flamingo and Watermelon

I made yesterday's interactive card using the CAS Colours & Sketches color prompt.  Tom thought the Flirty Flamingo/Watermelon Wonder "sun" looked more like a rose, and when I realized I forgot the Clean And Simple part of CAS, I added the So Saffron layer.  Today, I tried again, and to keep myself focused on Clean And Simple, I worked in the flower theme for Jaydee's prompt from The Paper Players:
stamp sets - Dragonfly Dreams, Swirly Bird, All Things Thanks; ink - Island Indigo, Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder; card stock - Island Indigo, Whisper White; Big Shot with Detailed Dragonfly thinlits

Then while I had the inks and stamps out, and because it tickled me that Hand Stamped Sentiments called for nearly the same colors this week, I made another:
stamp sets - Swirly Bird, All Things Thanks; ink - Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder; card stock - Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder, Emerald Envy: Big Shot with Swirly Scribbles thinlits

The sentiment is from All Things Thanks, but I'm not sure whether these are Thank You cards, Birthday cards, or Congratulations cards - when I know, I'll stamp the inside.
