Fly Away


I do love how this card turned out but its a bit CAS for me really but I'm going to have to accept that is what I'm liking at the moment.
Being that its Saturday this is a Penny Black stamp called Fly Away and is available as a Slapstick stamp while mine is actually a wooden one. The sketch is from The Friday Sketch Challenge of course someone had to use an image that wasn't a square and almost takes over the card!
The stars are from Simon Says Stamps Large Holiday shapes die and I used the die to cut round to make the mats, the Tilted Banner is also Simon Says Stamp. The kites are Memory Box and again I used the die to draw round and cut out to make the mats behind them and you have to use twine for their tails but gosh those little bows are tiny but they have to be used or else the kites don't look finish.
