Just flying by...

It's been a while since I used the kite die and matching sentiment set from Whimsy Stamps, so I decided to get it out and create a card with it. Since my last couple of cards were rather fall-ish, I decided to use some pinks and blues today.


I created the circle background using dylusions inks and stencil. Then cut it out using a circle nestabilities shape, which I layered onto a black circle shape.

Before adhering the circle onto my car base I spritzed some dylusions ink onto the card base and added the vellum striped paper strips. 
As mentioned above the stamp set is by Whimsy Stamps - Take Flight - which includes several fun kite sentiments, and I cut it out using the matching kites die set. The set includes two dies, a larger kite and a smaller kite. The one I used here is the larger one. If you are a scrapbooker, this stamp set and dies would be perfect to use on your summer scrapbook pages. 

Here is what the complete set includes.
