Kite Card

Here is a quick and simple card I made today.  I was getting something out of a drawer and saw the cloud, kite and sun Sizzix dies that came with my big shot machine.  I have never used them and decided to give them a whirl!  I think they made a cute card out of lots of paper scraps, a few buttons, a tiny bow and a new stamp that came from Lesia at Mema's Crafts.  Thanks Lesia!
I really kept this simple.  The only extra shading I did was on the kite and I used some brown chalk for that.  I just love the free feeling of this card.  It makes me think of my boys flying a kite on a beautiful day, laughing to my ears!
I hope you enjoy this card!
Have a wonderfully crafty day!
