Good Morning!

This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug.

Sweet Sassy Diva asked her DT use a kite as their theme for this week. While I'm not a DT member, I do play along when I can. :)

I started off with with the girl and kite shadow from A Child's Year cut @ 4.75 in purple and the regular cut at the same size in pink.

I didn't want the rope of the kite done in paper, so I cut it off both images.

I took some twine and put it where the paper had been. I taped it on the back so it would stay in place and "shredded" the tail end of it.

I cut a solid color at 4 X 5.25 and the patterned paper just a hair under that size. I added "spring" colored flower soft to the bottom. (My husband bought me a flower soft kit for Mother's Day and this is my first time using it.)

On the kite, I used Crystal and Glam Pink Stickles to add some interest. (Sorry for the bad picture!)

I glued everything but the twine down.

The bottom piece of my easel card was cut @ 3 X 4 and the patterned paper just a hair smaller. Spring was cut @ 1.25 from the Easter 2010 cartridge with the shadow. I added Pink Glam and Yellow stickles along with Viva Decor Violet pearl pen. I added 4 blue gems to the top to hold up the easel card.

The easel base was cut @ 4.25 X 11 in light purple.

Thanks for looking!

Jen this is a very delightful card. Love the twine for the kite string and the flower soft if very cool. Now I am on the hunt to get some of that.
