Flying By With a Happy Birthday
I'm was excited to see my good stamping friend, Mary Marsh, as the Featured Stamper over on Split Coast this week!
I always loved Mary's ...miss you Phoenix Daisy card that she made after returning from a trip out west to visit her granddaughter - so that's the card I cased.
I made my card 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" (my favorite size!), and used a piece of a map from a National Geographic showing the state I live in (MA). I found a ton of National Geographics when I had to clean out my parents attic - I recycled the magazines but removed and kept all the wonderful maps - I knew I'd want them someday! My plane and banner stamps and dies are from PTI and I used Copics to color the plane just a bit. I used a piece of peppermint twine to link the banner to the plane and popped them up on foam tape over the map.
I'm also using this for the Less is More challenge - Up in the Air.
