Pals Paper Arts, What Will You Stamp? and TGIF Challenges

Well it's been a while since I did a challenge but when I looked at a few this week I could actually combine 3 together WOW this is great. And this card is going out to a special fellow Stampin' Up! friend too.
These are the challenges
Pals Paper Arts #PPA310

The meaning of this particular picture is all about cutting! 
Fussy cutting or die cutting we don't care, we just want to see you Cut. It. Out.

The sketch, the stampset and fussy cutting as the leaf, heart and the flamingo are all fussy cut!
