Riley Flies With Balloons

I had so much fun creating this card for several reasons: 1) It is my dad's birthday card. Always a blast! 2) I {heart} using Riley stamps! 3) I was creative! The Riley Plane image from Hanna Stamps is a fairly long stamp with a blank banner attached to the back of the airplane. I'm not a huge fan of the banner...seems a bit too small to include a message. I haven't experimented with it much, so in time I may change my mind. ;) Dad loves planes, so this will be a perfect fit.

Stamps: Riley Airplane (Hanna Stamps), Cupcake Birthday (SU), Cupcakes Sentiment (Inkadinkado)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo, Palette Noir, Bashful Blue
Paper: Archiver's Red, Basic Grey DP, Very Vanilla, PTI White

Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Black Photo Pen, Copics

I'm a huge fan of Riley. And I love how clever you were to leave off the banner and add sparkly balloons to the back of the plane. I'm sure your dad will love it.

Wonderful cards. Thanks for visiting my blog. I noticed a blog for Log homes. My best friend grew up in one. I love them. Hope yours is going well.
