Color Challenge 13

I was perusing on a few sites after work today and found this eye catching Color Challenge over at and I knew I had to play along! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this color combination! It took me all of about a minute to know what I wanted to make for it. Inspiration strikes hard and fast sometimes!

Voila! With summer in full swing, I thought a kite shaped card would be perfect! And yes, it even has a cute 'tail' that hangs down using our new, Whisper White 1/4" Cotton Ribbon. I am in LOVE with our new cotton ribbon that replaced our Grosgrain Ribbon. It ties easier and lays flatter on projects for mailing. 

The cute flower stamp is from the Petite Petals set. The butterflies were punched out of the floral image in the Six Sided Sampler set. Totally gives it a different look when it's not punched out with the typical Hexagon Punch, doesn't it? Love versatility! Add a few rhinestones to make it sparkle!

And yes, the card opens up just like so. I had so much fun making this card. Takes me back to my childhood when we would go over into the neighbors field and fly our kites on windy days. Good times! Happy Stamping!
