One of my besties (can you call a really close guy friend a bestie?) had a birthday. He loves to travel. He loves to fly planes. He knows the ins and outs of most airports. He knows the pros and cons of each frequent traveller perk. He's visited 48 out of 50 states...So it was only natural to make a card with a plane inspired by this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch.
See the cute little plane? And do you recognize the drool-worthy banners?!
Stamps: (Fly Away) Papertrey Ink; (Bitty Banners) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White, Spring Rain) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko; (Jenni Bowlin - No. 3 Chili Powder) Ranger
Embellishments: (Rustic Button Cream Twine) Papertrey Ink; (Mister Huey - White) Studio Calico
The background paper is misted with some yummy Mister Huey. I thought it would be a nice way to create an abstract sky.
I wanted to keep the color scheme white, blue, black and red. SO this inspired the banners colors. A little bit of twine to pull it all together...
I hope the knots aren't too girly for a boy ... But yeah - can't go wrong with a plane for this guy friend!
