A departure from my usual stampy style today - only the sentiment is stamped on this one!
It struck me while making this that it was probably inspired by this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge so I'm linking there. It wasn't a conscious thing but I knew the dare was "acute angles" and having gone to sleep trying to come up with an idea for a seven year old's birthday card, I woke up thinking kites for no apparent reason.
I don't own a kite stamp so I found a clip art kite and used it as a template to cut DCWV cardstock for a paper pieced kite. Lots of acute angles in those tail bows even if the kite itself has some right angles in the mix!

The recpient seemed pleased with it which is always a relief when it comes to kids' cards - I find them hard enough I never know whether I've pitched them about right or not!
Thanks for stopping by, hope your weekend is a good one!
