Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest heights...

Good Morning! Welcome to another addition of Super Challenge Saturday! This weeks it's Gabby's turn to host and she's got an awesome sketch for you to play with! I altered her sketch a little, only because I couldn't figure out how to get the last element in on my card.

Here's the great sketch that Gabby designed for us:

Great, don't you think!

Here's my card:

I flipped mine a little and as you can see I am missing the circle element of her sketch. This image I found via a post on Splitcoast that this awesome guy has 3 free digi-images. Well, you know this has been my latest obsession so I had to go check it out. ISN'T HE CUTE!!?? OK, so who's this awesome guy. His name is Dustin Pike. Please go check out his blog. I think we are going to be seeing some great things from him!

I colored this adorable dragon with Prismacolor Markers (Parrot Green, Lime Peel, Canary Yellow and Pink) and then had to cut him out otherwise he was too big for the card. For the kite, I printed it again, cut it separately and mounted to black card stock. The dragon is pop dotted. I had to scan my card so the dimension is sort of distorted. The sentiment I took a line from the song from Mary Poppins Let's Go Fly A Kite. So now I'll be singing this song for days. Oh, by the way, it's completely lost on the scan - but I did sponge clouds to create the background.

I hope you enjoy the card. Hop on over to Gabby's blog and Joni's blog, I'm sure they've got something totally, amazingingly wonderful for you to see!!
