Up In the Air

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week it is a Designer's Choice Challenge and Shirley has chosen: It's Up In the Air.  So anything that is up in the air: planes, kites, birds, butterflies, etc.  Here is the card I created:
I started out with the background and since the metro stamp isn't large enough to cover the whole panel, I stamped it sort of randomly all over and really, you don't even really notice.  I stamped the plane image and then added the gray clouds.  It's quite hard to tell in this photo, but I embossed the black panel with a diagonal stripe embossing folder.  The little strip of stars was in my bits and pieces stash.
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week; there are so many options for this challenge!  Can't wait to see what you create.  And if you need any of the stamps I used; check out the 10% off your entire order coupon over in my left sidebar.

I figured someone would use the airplane - and love this layout - the stars are the finishing touch to this card. Love how you used the map.

A really great masculine card, Heather! You made excellent use of our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch. I like the idea of a map background for your flight themed card. The addition of those little stars from your stash really highlights the circle! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at TSOT!!! -Donna
