Boy Card

Hi, there, folks!  Today I made a card for our grandson.  He lives so far away from us, and we miss him so much.  We send him cards regularly to let him know how proud we are of him and how much we love him. Here it is:

I used Recollections cardstock.  The kite images and sentiment are from Pink Paislee - Prairie Hill (gifted to me by Lesia of Mema's Crafts.) Ink:  Memento Danube Blue and Summer Sky.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I used my new Wink of Stella Clear Pen to add sparkle to the kites and their tails.  I popped up the sentiment.  The white cardstock was sponged with the Danube Blue ink to mimic the sky and add a little texture.  I debated putting on sequins, but rejected the idea because our grandson is not a fan of bling.

I'm entering these challenges:  Send a Smile 4 Kids - Anything Goes; Crafty Girls Challenges - #7 Anything Goes; and The Male Room - Little Boys and Babies.

Have a great day!
