Airborne Birthday

It is our nephew Skanda's birthday on Friday. He lives in Sydney, Australia. I posted this card last Saturday morning and I received an e-mail from him today thanking me for it!! WOW!!! That's got to be a record- 6 days!!! What a service!!! Skanda is taking flying lessons, so when I saw these embellies I thought that they would be ideal for his card. I used paper from an old DCWV stack- it has both blue & stormy sky so I used both! I mounted the large plane onto a piece of sky paper and matted & layered it with silver mirri & navy card. I also mounted a smaller image but this time omitting the sky paper.Doesn't the plane look realistic on that paper?!!!. I cut about 4cms from the front of the card, then covered the front with blue sky and the inside back with stormy sky. The smaller image is on the inside back of the card. I cut out Skanda's name & age from Crafttime navy glitter paper and a shadow in silver mirri. I then arranged the elements & stuck it all into place. I added 'happy birthday' in the same glitter paper to the inside of the card. I think for male cards the simpler the better although for a gal who LOVES ribbon,flowers & bling it can be hard to restrain oneself!!!!
