Fly away birthday

ETA: This post was scheduled for this morning but apparently didn't work!

Howdy everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I'm actually away in the Finger Lakes so I've scheduled this post for this morning. Fly Away is the newest release from Becky Oehlers. It's perfect for little boys (and big one's too!). My oldest sister Janet is a pilot, so actually the set is perfect for anyone who likes planes!
See the cool bubble looking paper along the bottom of the card? I made it using a stamp from the For the Love of Dots set by Practicing Creativity Designs. It's so cute! I alternated Summer Sunrise, Spring Rain and Orange Zest ink. The card base and a few other details on the plane are Terracotta Tile.

Quick and easy really! This card is for my nephew Joey who turned 9 in February. I still haven't seen him to give him his gifts, so he won't realize I made the card late! *grin*

Thanks for dropping by. Have a creative day!

Dana, I had to pop right over here after reading your comment on my Fly Away card. I love that you curved the sentiment the other way too. It's awesome if I'm on the same wavelength as you:) I love those dots you stamped at the bottom and the way you threaded your ribon through the panel. Great card! We have some lucky nephews. LOL!

So cute -- the repeated sentiment with the circle/star motif inbetween is perfect. And -- it's a good thing you didn't make him a card in February, right? If you had you wouldn't have had this perfect stamp set!
