Things That Fly

Hello friends,

I hope you are all doing well. Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D Challenges with the theme “Things that fly”. I am joining Team Darlene for this fun challenge. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your card!

I was inspired by the colors, lovely kite and white clouds in the photo. I used two layers of  colorful background paper to create a cheerful feeling to the card. I added the kite and embellished it with little roses and a gemstone. To give the feeling of movement some puffy clouds were added. I finished off with a bright red bow, more blue gemstones, a yellow button heart and a bold sentiment. For the list of dies used, please scroll down to the bottom of my photos. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

Challenges I entered:
