I love when a sketch challenge perfectly works with a color challenge to make a fun, bright card. The sketch challenge comes from Pals Paper Arts and the color challenge from Fab Friday.
I started with a base of Tempting Turquoise and layered it with some Real Red over Whisper White.
I then traced the clouds from Balloon Celebration, fussy cut them out, and placed them over the Real Red. Next, I stamped three kites from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set (Real Red, Island Indigo, and Night of Navy) and placed one over each cloud. I stamped the kite tails in Night of Navy and then added a white Baker’s Twine bow to each kite.
The sentiment comes from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo.

So cute! Love your design and the colors are just perfect for the little kites. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday, hope to see you again soon!
Love the patriotic look to this! Cute!
I love how you made the kites look like they’re flying through the clouds. Thank you for joining the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week.
I was so happy to see shapes that we can make into kits in this set – you’ve done a super cute job with them, with your bits of twine and fluffy clouds! Love it! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
Great job mixing and matching stamp set! Love the idea of tracing the clouds (not everything has to be stamped!) and they show up so well against the red background! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
Such a cute card, Jaimie! I love how you’ve combined these challenges into a super-fun and super-festive card. Love it! Thanks so much for playing along with this FabFriday color challenge.
