Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!
Happy Day!
                   Today's card have a lot of fun! I recently added the Kite set from Paper Smooches and it's really cute!  My nephew birthday is coming and he love kites very much! So I wanted to create some sort of summer sky. And I played with my favorite Distress inks and Memento inks too!
                  The frame for the kites and clouds were die cut from the snippet of white and navy blue CS. The inside pieces were water colored using distress and memento inks and added some white gel pen accents to the kite. On the inside pieces of clouds, I created some textures for fun and really like the way it resembles a puffy texture.
          Firstly I blended some distress inks and then applied texture transparent gloss paste and before drying added some white beads and diamond dust on it. So happy to see the result:).
And see the cute little detail on the kite tails. I die cut some additional bows out of the felt and adhered on my cream colored twine.
     Before adhering my focal panel I die cut it using border die and also die cut a navy blue thin strip using the same die. At the bottom, I adhered a colorful stripe PP. Now I created the whole scene. The celebrate sentiment is also from a felt one.

Inside view:
        I started off using my Memento dye inks blend a blue ombre BG. I concentrated on the darker top and fade lighter towards the center of the panel. I used a wet brush for splatters and added
some pearl drops too. I just love the effects to create the sky! And heat embossed my sentiment and try to match with my outer look!
PS: A very talented Nicole from is hosting National Craft Month Celebrations using our favorite items with a fabulous hop and prizes!!! Come and join the fun!

Hi vinita , cute creation
The color board for this month is the RAINBOW .. And as we know the rainbow is just not complete without rain or a bunch of clouds .. So along with the colors we have a twist too - to make to make a SET OF CRAFTY STUFF (could be a pair or a triplet and more) and use atleast FOUR out of the seven colors from the Rainbow.
