Hibiscus Flamingo Card

I was looking over challenges this morning because I was going to get to play in my "craft cave" (which is actually upstairs...can a cave be high?)  Wink.  Anyway I saw one which was really a challenge!  It was at Curtain Call and had a "Hibiscus" theme.  I used to grow them every summer outside in pots on the patio and around the pool.  BUT a card that is where I had to put on my thinking cap.  I was trying to remember if I had any hibiscus stamps and seemed to remember a couple of older Hampton Art sets which had them.   Then I remembered a 3x4 little pad of papers by Authentique called Utopia.  The very first sheet in the pad was a beautiful hibiscus!  The rest is as they say history.  Hope you like my very challenging challenge card!  This hibiscus card will be blooming at:
