Friday Mashup!! Fan Favorite with Kites!

Happy Stampy Friday!! We have a great challenge for you this's our Fan Favorite!!! We're playing with kites, thanks to a challenge presented by Laureen...which is a lot of fun! I made this card in advance...then realized that I won't be flying a kite today, but I will flying on a plane! I am headed back from LA to my little home in Danville Illinois! I am probably exhausted after a full week of conference workshops. So, I'll look at your creations after I get some sleep!
  1. Make a project using colorful twine
  2. Or make a kite themed project
  3. Or make a kite themed projet using colorful twine
I don't have any kite stamps...but I want some! In lieu of stamps, I made my own kite. My card has very little stamping...just a sentiment from a new birthday set. My card base is black, and I added a little of each of this years in-colors. Pool Party for the sky background, with clouds drawn by a white gel pen. Then I made portions of the kite in wisteria wonder, lucky limeade, calypso coral, and indigo island. Each piece was embossed with a different folder, and a polka dot brad holds it together. I added baker's twine for the tail, and some on the card fold as well.
Check out this week's challenge, and play along! Link up your project on the Friday Mashup blog, and use keyword FM52 in your gallery.
