inspired by {kites!}

Hi all!  I've been spotting a bunch of gorgeous kites on some of my favorite blogs, so I was inspired to create my own!  As you've probably gathered, I'm also very enamored by the Sweet & Sour DSP, so of course, this was my palette of choice.  How do you like the little sneak peek snippet of my kite?  Do you like it so far?  Well, here's the full view for you.
Believe it or not, this was super easy to make from scratch!  I used all kinds of fun favorite elements, like the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Basic Pearls, and Scallop Border punch.  I also used a couple buttons for good measure.  And, couldn't leave stamping out of it - I stamped my sentiment using the Curly Cute Happy Birthday sentiment.  You like? Hope so!  Once I get a chance, I'll post a quick tutorial for my little kite assembly.  You'll see it's a snap to do with just a little bit of scrap paper, too!  All the supplies I used for this project are Stampin'Up!, except for the bit of twine I used for the kite tail {PTI}.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  This week is racing past me, so you'll have to forgive my sparse posting this week!  Catch you guys a little later!  Bye for now.
