Just playing....

.............with some October Afternoon paper. I LOVE the 8 by 8 pads.

I took a literal approach to the Fly a Kite line and came up with this: I cut out the triangular shapes and cut some in half vertically and horizontally and then glued the pieces onto the solid ones to form the kites. I poked a hole under the kite to add the embroidery floss that goes down under the sentiment. I added some black dots around the main panel and around the cloud.
Easy and fun!

You can find this October Afternoon paper pad at:
Stamper's Dream store .

Materials used: white cardstock (Gina K Designs); Designer paper- Fly a Kite 8 by 8 pad (October Afternoon); Farm Fresh word sticker (October Afternoon); embroidery floss.

Have a great day!
