Ready for take-off

Hi there!


After I finished this card, I realized that this is the first easel card on my blog! I've made a few before I started my blog, but this is the first to be featured on my blog!

I also thought it was about time to make a male card again.  I know lots of crafters out there struggle with male cards , but in a way I really love making them. Perhaps because it forces you to think of other embellishments than flowers , lace and pearls!











The papers and digi are from create with tlc

What a terrific guy card! I love that airplane paper - really cool. The diamond plate embossing and the black pinwheel really finish it off perfectly. So glad you joined in the fun with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
