Purple Bottles & Kites

After a busy couple of weeks I was excited to get some crafty time this weekend and not just card making crafty.  Last night a few friends got together to make Bermuda kites.  It's tradition here on Good Friday to fly kites and to eat lots of hot cross buns and fishcakes. 
As you can see from the photo we all went for different patterns.  It's a seriously fiddly job cutting the panels and gluing them down and I confess that by 10:30pm I was losing the will to live but I got it done and we'll see on Friday if it flies.      

As for my card this is for The Card Concept and I'd say it definitely falls into the clean and simple category.  The bottles and sentiment are from Fresh Squeezed Stamps (sadly closed) and the flower is Altenew.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bottle from Soda-Lighted, Sentiment from Mother Knows Best) Fresh Squeezed Stamps, (Flower from Doodle Blooms) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFne Onyx Black) Tsukeniko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Gems:  Recollections
