Happy Birthday Kite card



Happy Sunday, I'm playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge this week, I had gone looking for the Cut Loose Paper Smooches stamp earlier this week and couldn't find it (if you saw my lack of organization you wouldn't be surprised), but in search of the white crayon this morning (which I couldn't find), I found the stamp...  one step forward, one step backward....    So in order to play along with this week's PTI Make It Monday (crayon resist) I borrowed a silver crayon from the boys' craft desk and colored in my clouds.  To add a little extra dimension to my simple card I added glossy accents over the clouds and paper pierced the kite out of October Afternoon paper.  Wishing everyone a fabulous day....

I must give the crayon resist a try. It is very cool. Your layout is awesome. Having a relaxing day watching my niece at her dressage competition.

Ooooo...super cute, Erin! The way you made the clouds is very cool, and I like the added dimension. Your paper piecing on the kite is very sweet. Thanks for joining us at Paper Smooches SPARKS!

SUPER SUPER cute, Erin! I LOVE those patterned papers for that kite! LOVE your story about "one step forward and backwards"! I hate that that happened to you-- but it's comforting knowing that I'm not the only one that has that situation!!!! Clever to use silver instead of white-- great idea!! THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS Designer Drafts challenge <3 Hope you join in the fun again this week <3
