Polka dot kite

When I recieved my new little kite stamp I though I'd make a card using the sketch for my current challenge right here on the Addict blog (click the link on the side bar for all the info - remember, you don't have to use a DeNami product), but then when I received the e-mail from the Lawnscaping blog announcing their   current challenge  I though it fit my new stamp perfectly so I did both!

Now don't go freaking out on me when you see this creation of mine...I know it will be a shock, but yes, I did use just a little patterned paper *gasp*! I'm still a little shocked myself  ;)  I love making my own patterned paper but for some reason I just reached for the red/yellow spotted and striped paper I had tucked away.
I stamped the kite and paper pieced two of the sections then masked it off and stamped the clouds. For the sentiment I cut out two of the flags from the Lawn Fawn Banerific set. I'm really surprised at myself when it comes to this card as it was outside of my little scalloped box for sure...I don't think I would have tried this color combo without Lawnscaping's pretty inspirational photo! New color palette and patterned papers all in one card...Ohh My!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oops...I just notice that I have DeNami's chocolate cardstock lister, I actually used their kraft cardstock, sorry!
