Fly Higher

This week at, Jen Mitchell has provided this fun square sketch for the challenge. I decided to combine it with the challenge for this week at , which is "Up, Up, and Away". I have had these cute "Paper Kites" embellishment set by Recollections at Michael's for a while and think this kite would work perfect for the challenge.
Papers - Started with a basic white base card and matted it with light blue cardstock and a cloud pattern paper. I did the same with the center square with blue and white cardstock.
Kite -  Embellishment set by Recollections from Michael's Craft Store. I popped the kite with 3-D squares, for depth.
Clouds - Die cuts "Clouds" set of three sizes, by Cottage Kutz. I matted them all with chipboard and popped them with 3-D squares.
Sentiment - I found the sentiment on line..."True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher", by John Petit-Sean. Typed using different font, printed it, and matted with cardstock.
Sorry, still having problems with my camera/computer posting my colors and clarity correct, Ugh!!!

Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail!
