Flying By

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  It was hubby's birthday a week before christmas so I thought it was about time that I showed you one of the cards that I made for him.  He really loves aeroplanes so this was just perfect.  In his younger days he did take and pass his private pilots licence but it is just got too expensive for him to continue flying.  One regret he has is that he never managed to take me as a passenger with him.  Maybe one day he can retake his exams and get in the air again.  Anyway this card was just perfect for him.

I used a CD from Kraftyhands called Vintage Transport which can be found here.  I printed out the pyramage topper, backing paper, sentiment and paper bow from the CD. I used kraft card to matt the background paper.  Around the main image I added some stickles.  The letters for the word DAD were die cut and then some stickles added.  A brad on the bow and some card candi finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you all think.  Take care out there as there are various severe weather reports around the country at the moment.  It is pretty windy and cold here at the moment.

An awesome masculine card and extra special knowing the story behind it. Love the layers on the image and the sky in the background.

So funny, my hubby has a birthday on the 30th of this month! Why just at the busiest time of the year!! However, his card got made on his birthday and given to him at lunch time! You were much more organised.I really love the sky background and the bow. Thank you for sharing this with us at the Squirrel and the Fox for our current challenge.
