CAS: Let's Go Fly a Kite


Good morning!  I was looking through the challenges yesterday and the Jellypark Friends challenge was "Let's Go Fly a Kite", so I thought I would use that as a start and try to pair it with some other challenges.

I've had this fun Changito stamp for awhile but hadn't used it yet...it's pretty big and doesn't leave room for a lot of layers so I thought clean and simple was the way to go!  I simply stamped and colored the image, paper pieced the kite, and layered the image panel with dimensionals on a white card base.  I just realized that I used no embellishments on this card; that sure doesn't happen often!  The inside reads "Enjoy life's simple pleasures."

Image: Stampendous
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Plaid (from my stash, received from a friend)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz: Summer
Cute Card Thursday: Here Comes Summer
Dutch Dare Card Challenge: Summer Fun
Paper Shelter: The Great Outdoors
Raise the Bar: Did Someone Say Summer?
Whimsey Stamps: White on White

Thanks for stopping by; have a great weekend!
