Flyin' for You

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week has started off great!

Today I have a fun birthday card for you. I thought this would be a PERFECT card for a boy. I used this color challenge from SCS - So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Pumpkin Pie. The set is Flyin' Birthday from Our Craft Lounge. It is a fun set - especially for boy stuff - and, well, I have 2 boys! :)

I was very happy with how the card came together. I started with cutting the airplane image out with Nestabilities. Next - on to find some ribbon. There were 3 different ones I was considering - and then a moment of *woohoo* came to me - USE THE RIC RAC and put BRADS in each groove! ACK - I don't often have those moments - LOL! The rest kind of fell into place.




I absolutely LOVE using my Crystal Effects for a nice raised glossy effect - so I added that to the goggles and the windshield. A little Sakura clear glitter pen on the propeller made it shine. Next came the hemp twine to hold the Happy Birthday sign flying behind the plane. I popped the banner up - but it looked too plain - so I pierced some holes around it to help it pop even more. VOILA - I was very happy!
Here's hoping that you have a wonderful day!
