Go Fly a Kite!

Paige at the CARDS blog has asked for cards with kites.  Here is mine:


Kites always remind me of my Dad.  I remember when our boys were little his making them kites and taking them to an open area to fly them.  I pieced mine using Cosmo Cricket Material Girl and Garden Variety papers; I thought they showed up nicely against my blue sky with flower clouds (Hero Arts cling CG123 Flower Wallpaper).  The sentiment sticker is from a Susan Branch scrapbook kit from years ago.  I added tiny buttons to the tails of the kites. 

I'm also entering this into the Card Style Fun and Cute Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
