Two in One

Hello there! This is a card I created using this FUN sketch from DT Member, Sherri, at DeNami Design:

and these yummy colors from the most recent challenge at Off The Wall Craftiness:

The color challenge at Off The Wall Craftiness also ends tomorrow (Sept 30th)! A randomly selected participant will win an Extreme Glitter prize pack from Plaid Crafts. So hurry on over there to check out the details! Click HERE!

Here are a couple of more photos of the card I created for these awesome challenges:

The kite image is "Fly a Kite (K63)" from DeNami Design! I love its whimsy!!! I used my "Cloud" dies and "Background Basics: Text Style II" (all from Papertrey Ink) to create the clouds.

So...What do you think? I hope it's the kind of card that brings a smile to your day!!!
