Come Fly With Me!

I made this card for my husband's birthday. Building & flying model planes was his hobby when we first met and as funds allowed he has since changed to flying full sized light aircraft. Therefore, as soon as I saw this LOTV image it was the obvious choice for a card for him.

When the stamp arrived I hid it so well I thought I had lost it but luckily I found it just in time! I used my copics to colour it. The papers are from Fine & Dandy True Blue and Papermania Secret Garden. I used matt Gold Mirri as the backing and used one of my favourite MS punches. The tiny flags were cut from a different sheet of the Fine & Dandy paper. I don't very often admit to being happy with my work but must say, I think this was one of my better efforts, even though it was made in a bit of a rush.  Sorry the photo isn't very clear.

I'd like to enter it in the following challenges - always hoping that I meet all the rules!
