Inking It Up Crazy Design Team Post - Fly

Today's Inking It Up Crazy DT design challenge was to use a Font cartridge in our project.  I recently purchase the "Songbird" cartridge on clearance at Michael's, so I though this would be a great time to try it out. 

The text that stood out to me was "Fly" and I thought it would go perfect with a kite.  The card base I used another cut from the "Songbirds" cartridge and I welded it in my Gypsy.  The kite is from the "Create a Critter" cartridge and is cut the at 2".  The clouds are from the same cartridge cut at 2", 1.5" and 1.25" then run through my Cuttlebug for some added texture.  For the details, I used my sewing machine for the stitching on the kite, used a white gel pen for the border around the card and then three white brads following the "Fly". 

Be sure to stop by Inking It Up Crazy to see what the others talented ladies have come up with.

I hope everyone is having a great week - Melanie
