Friday Mashup Challenge #52

This is my final week as a Guest Designer at The Friday Mashup. I want to thank everyone there for giving me this wonderful opportunity, I have thoroughly enjoyed it! And now, on to the challenge:
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
I only have one color of I think I may need to get some more colors! Since, I couldn't come up with anything using that particular color I just went with a project featuring kites. This also took me a while, but I settled on this cute, but simple baby girl card. Here is the ironic thing about this baby girl card...I used patterned paper from Nana's Nursery Baby Boy and the kite is from the cricut cartridge Boys Will Be Boys! The card is 4 1/4"x5 1/2." The brown mat is 4"x5 1/4," and the words mat is 3 7/8"x5 1/8." I wrapped the two mat layers with some sheer lavendar ribbon and adhered them to the card base. I used Boys Will Be Boys for the kite, it is cut at 4 1/2." I added a little white button to the center of it, because it just needed a little "something." The mats for the sentiment are from Elegant Edges. I used the oblong feature and cut the brown one at 2 1/2" and the ivory one at 2 1/4." The stamp is called "It's a Girl Script," by Whipper Snapper Designs. I use foam tape to adhere my kit to the card for some dimension. I finished it off with some lavendar pearls in the corners of the card and the sentiment mat. I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you decide to play along at The Friday Mashup!
