Flying High with Friday Mashup

Happy Friday to everyone! I have to say I am happy this week is coming to a close, it's just been one of those weeks and I am ready for the weekend and some time to relax.

It's time for another Friday Mashup challenge and this one happens to be the challenge that won our Fan Favorite contest. This week we are supposed to make a project and incorporate colorful twine or create a project featuring kites. The stamp set "Send Me Soaring" in the Occasions Mini is perfect for this challenge!

I love this weeks sketch over at The Paper Players so I used that as my starting point for this card and just went from there(and I'm getting the card in just under the wire for their challenge, whew!). Even though I am not happy about spring and all my snow melting I think I did a good job bringing a spring vibe to this card! I'm also not a big fan of twine but I did manage to incorporate some on my card!

So here is the Friday Mashup:
  1. Make a project using "Colorful Twine".
  2. Or Make a project featuring "Kites".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with " Kites and Colorful Twine".
