I Spy Sketches #25

Hi all, well today I am doing a sketch for I Spy Sketches  challenge.  Another cute sketch, this one is designed by Elzbieta B. 
 I was going to draw lines for the kites and tried the design on a scrap of paper with drawn black lines and didn't like it.   I then went to my trusty string, it was a bit tricky to get the string on, but I think it gives a much better look.  To get the string on I first cut it all to 1 length then tied it in a knot.  Then I lined all the string flat on the card and attached it under the kites, cutting it to the length I wanted as I went.  I hope this helps if you give it a try.  All the colors of the kites are the  2011, 2012 in colors from Stampin'up.  
So here is my card.........

I am also going to enter this card in the 
Stamp It! Cards Love Card Challenge in the  Moxie Fab World

Have a great day 
Sandy :)


  1. Hi Sandy, such a different cute card......I think you must also like owls?
    I just noticed too that you live here in Aussie, which state?

    1. I am in Victoria Elaine. How can anyone not love owls they are so darn cute. :)

  2. Such an adorable and clever card, Sandy!

  3. I love it! The owl is having a whale of a time flying all these kites! I'm not copying honestly but I have a card made for posting on my blog later this week/early next week that looks scarily like this. Great minds think alike!
    Btw, I love that you live in Victoria!! Must be a great place! :)
