New Goodies!!!

My new preorder goodies arrived today!  Yippee skippy!  I was babysitting all day though so I didn't get a chance to play until now.  I wanted to participate in the challenge at Black Tie Fridays because I have a good friend who is graduating from college with a 4.0 on Saturday!  Go Mandy!  I am so proud of you!  If you are checking out my blog you get to see your card here before you get it on Saturday at your PARTAAAAYYY!!! :)
I got a video from my 5th upline, Linda Bauwin, on how to make a kite card, which I thought would be perfect for a graduation card.  You can see her video here.
I made my kite card but then decided I wanted it to be anchored on something, so the base is just a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Soft Sky cardstock that is embossed with the Clouds Embossing Folder. I had forgotten how light Soft Sky was! The stamp is a Sneak Peak from the new catalog, Really Good Greetings. I LOVE this set of sayings. There are a lot of greeting sets that are right up my alley in the new catalog. Go figure. lol
Stamp Sets: Really Good Greetings, Up Up & Away
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn, Island Indigo, Melon Mambo

  3. Fantastic card. I like that you anchored your kite, it takes the card to another level. The stitching was a great element to add. Thank you for playing at Black Tie Fridays.
