Fly with me

Fly with me 2013

We are starting our Card For Men challenge #2 and it is all about ANY KIND OF TRANSPORTANTION so let's see all your ideas. Our sponsor is  Meljen's Designs and the prize is 4 digi images. The image I used is called PUPPY PILOT. I do hope you enjoy my card this was a different and fun card to make.  I made this for my grandson birthday and her just loved it. He thought it was so much fun and I loved the way he laughed and gave me a hug and said this is awesome grandma.

I found all this stuff together in a box and I wanted to do something a little different so this is what I came up with. Paper pieced the airplane. The paper is from Paper Studio. The buttons, round fabric brads and ribbon paper clips are from spare parts from Hobby Lobby.

Used spellbinder lattice rectangles to cut out the image.  Punch out some silver paper with Marvy Uchida star punch. Used a corner rounder on the edges.
