Up, Up & Away

Yes, another flight themed card from me today!

I'll be entering it into:

Card Patterns sketch

The Shabby Tearoom red, blue, white
The Pink Elephant challenge red, white, blue
Papertake Weekly 'Anything Goes'

For this I've use the Echo Park balloon digi stamp as the focal point, printed onto kraft and die cut with labels 4. Layered onto corrugated red card and a Sizzix die cut label.
You can just see the Tim Holtz brackets die which I've run the seam binding along. The seam binding was white which I've coloured to match the blues and tied in some Bakers Twine.

I finished off the bow with a paper-scrunched rosette and lace and secured with a brad. I topped it off with a digi stamp greeting, backed with a die cut star and chipboard flourish.
