Flying by with a Birthday Hi!

Happy Thursday! Yesterday was my Dad's birthday. In typical fashion, I didn't get his card made until yesterday evening, but here it is! I had spotted this Cosmo Cricket Lil' Man paper in my stash and thought it would be perfect with this airplane from MFT's Going Places. The sentiment is from You Take the Cake.

I colored with Copics. The banner and airplane were cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The stitching in the ribbon was too white for this vanilla card, so I colored over it with my E11 Barely Beige Copic marker. I love that I can do that! :)

Hopefully Dad will have this card in his hands today -- better late than never! I did call him yesterday -- I'm not that bad! ;) Anyway, thanks for the visit today! I'm always glad when you stop by!

Have a great day!

Dad will love that card.
It's so eye opening when you see one of the smaller elements of a stamp set take center stage on a card. Makes me realize how much more I could be getting out my sets.

I love your card and I bet your Dad will love it also. I like the little birthday banner and the colors look great.
