Flying high

I have been trying hard to come up with cards that can be used for boys and men. There are so many easy motifs suitable for women (flowers!), but not so many for males.

This card uses some of the same watercoloured background I used in the Squaring Up card, but in a very different context.

happy birthday kite

I’m entering this in Muse #181 challenge as it’s inspired by Sarah Platt’s stunning card:

Sarah Platt - Razzle Dazzle Crafts - for Muse #181

and also Seize the Birthday (Anything Goes Birthday) 

(edited to add the link – not sure where that went!)

And here’s the haiku:

Are you leaving us?
Fly on: your adventure is
elsewhere. Cut your string.

    This is absolutely stunning and love how you’ve used the kite instead of the heart. Superb water colours and a brilliant take on my Muse card. Thanks for playing along this week. Sarah x

    Love how you took elements from Sarah’s MUSE card and added your interpretation to create a wonderful masculine card
