Taking Flight for Your Birthday – Retro Sketches #157

SKP Watermarked Photos3-023Was this ever a fun card to make!! I was inspired by the sketch this week over at Retro Sketches:

rs157I pulled out some fun paper from Carta Bella and finally inked up a stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps called Take Flight.

SKP Watermarked Photos3-026I used a star pattern paper for the backing to my shaker and then filled it with confetti and circles from my Shakers & Sprinkles Collection from Papertrey Ink. Not a sequin or a bit of sparkle anywhere for THIS card!

SKP Watermarked Photos3-027I popped the sentiment and airplane up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and added two pieces of confetti on the outside of the shaker frame for a bit more pop. I was a bit unhappy when I had stamped my airplane and reached for the packet to grab the dies and there were none. Oops! I seem to do that ALL the time with my Clearly Besotted Stamps…I have NO idea why!! So I was reduced to fussy cutting the airplane and banner out. It took a bit longer but was definitely worth it!

If you have a chance, please pop over to Retro Sketches, they have lots of inspiration there with this awesome sketch!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate your visit so much!!

Wishing you joy and blessings!
