Kite Flying Weather

Happy Thursday, crafty friends.  I'm posting today for 3 Girl JAM and SVG Attic. And, I'm thinking spring. 
Did you ever fly kites in the spring when you were a kid?  We did -- every spring.  That was the inspiration behind this card --

The card is a cutting file from SVG Attic. It's the Spring Fling collection, found here.  I used some of my all-time favorite 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon -- Goblin Green, from the Spooky Bundle.  I braided some Lemonade Yellow Timeless Twine for the tail of the kite.
Here's a close up of the sentiment:

The clouds are part of the Spring Fling kit from SVG Attic, too.  The "Feel the Joy" sentiment is from The Unity Stamp Company. The little yellow bow is more Timeless Twine. Papers are from Lawn Fawn.
We're at the end of our spring challenge at 3 Girl JAM, but another one will start this weekend.  And, today starts a new challenge at SVG Attic.  It's Anything Goes -- my favorite!  Just use an SVG Attic file, and come link up! There's prizes you can win -- Gift certificates worth $25, $15, or $10 to SVG Attic. You have from now until May 31 -- get cutting!
