Birthday Boy

My nephew is crazy over planes. Whether he's building them or flying them by remote, he loves them and can't get enough of them. Naturally when this stamp came my way I had to make a card for him. I'm not sure he ever tied a kite's tail to his plane, but quite honestly, knowing him, he may very well have done so. Especially if he thought it might help it fly more true.

I made this card a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" square. My base cardstock is Naturals White followed by a layer of Not Quite Navy. In keeping with Nicole Watt's sketch on Pals Paper Arts, I made the next layer of Cherry Cobbler smaller to allow for a wider frame around it.  Then came my layer of Whisper White which I had stamped and then coloured using my wonderful Blendabilities.  They make colouring a real joy.  I kept it clean and simple to emphasize the coloured image and clean lines and  added only a sentiment from the Label Love stamp set and cut it out using my Artisan Label punch.
