Happy 60th Birthday Derek!

Today is my brother's 60th! Birthday - wow, makes you feel really old!

He loves aircraft so this stamp was a must buy on a visit to Crafts-u-Love earlier this year.
Yes, I know it's cute but hey - I'm the one making the card :)

Inspired by the Queen's jubilee celebrations, I created a fly-by!


The base card is an 8x8" from CWC covered with MME Good day Sunshine paper called Head in the Clouds. I used the rest of the paper to cut a "60" out and placed on the front.
I stamped and coloured 10 planes with Copics and mounted them onto the 60 at various heights.
The edges of the numbers have faux stitching to make them stand out a little.


A while back I bough some rub-on letters from Making Memories and I used these to create the message.


and add his name....



I stamped the whole image on the insert too. 


Hope you have a lovely day Derek.

I am entering this card into the Penny Black Challenge - Summertime and the living is easy - Love the blue sky background with fluffy clouds :)
And also Merly Impressions - Red/White/Blue Challenge - as inspired by Jubilee :)
