Oh, Go Fly a Kite!!

LOL, I knew that headline would get your attention!!

Now that I have it, let me show you an all-purpose card I dashed together this weekend for you. 

The cute dotted paper from which I cut a kite-shape is from my favorite Nikki Sivils line, "We Are Family."  The sentiment ("A Very Happy Day!") is also from that paper, though I cut the scallops above the text.  I used marker to draw the flag crossbow.

While I stitched around the perimeter using my sewing machine, I also made a curvy tail for the flag.  It just didn't pop, so I added a bit of twine atop, and tied knotted snips of grosgrain ribbons along it.  Mounted on a solid deep red paper and glued to a card. Tah-dahhhh, done! 

Hope you're having a good Wednesday!  Go fly a kite!!
