Playing With Kites card

It is amazing what a little Ultra Fine Flower Soft can add to a card or project.
For my card, I used one of the Flower Soft Moments In Time "Boy's Hobbies" toppers. These are great for a few reasons. One is that you get several of these in one package in two different designs. Two is that they are all pre-colored, so they are ready to use. Three, they are great for the foundation of a card but they work for other projects too. To create my card, I used one of the toppers with this cute little boy playing with a kite and then I added some Ultra Fine Flower Soft to portions of the design.

Notice the Strawberry Red Ultra Fine Flower Soft that I added to portions of the kite tail, the Citrus Crush Ultra Fine Flower Soft that I added to the edges of the little boys sweater and then the Citrus Crush that I added to the center lines in the kite. When I added the Citrus Crush to the kite, I had stray pieces of the Strawberry red close by so I added those too, resulting in a mix of colors that really turned out great. (Remember you get the best results by using the Tacky Glue that is also available through Flower Soft and you get the best results by being generous with the amount of the glue you use)
The big exciting news on the card is that cute patterned paper. This is some of the brand new Digi paper that is being released soon. It comes in an 8 1/2" x 11" format, but in my photo printing program, I choose to print it out 5" x 7" and so the result is that the designs are smaller. This is one of the things that make Digi papers fun is that they are versatile. I printed mine on my lustre photo paper.
