Let's go fly a kite

I spent the last couple of evenings nursing my head cold and working on this card. It was very therapeutic actually! Donna was over scrappin' with me last night - thanks for the advice to add stitching to my "fanned out" papers, I think it was just exactly what it needed! 

This card is for the current challenge at Saturated Canary - inspired by a movie. My movie is "Mary Poppins," one of my childhood favourites! If you have seen the movie, you may recall the song "Let's go fly a kite" hence the tie in.

My card is also for the challenge at Inky Chicks where they are having a BINGO challenge. I have managed to incorporate the items on every square except two! I included: image, sentiment, ribbon, bow, pins, pearls, flowers and die cuts.

I even managed to use a Brand New CTMH stamp set (C1539 - Scrapbook sentiments - Poets) on the inside - I love this quote! Here is a peek at the inside...

 Hope you have a fantastic Sunday! A big shout out to "Mr. Bananastamper," as one of you called him, as he has taken the boys ice fishing for the afternoon so that I can relax and kick this cold in the butt! Bliss!!!

Thanks so much for visiting!
