“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”
Joseph’s smile says it all after enjoying a flight yesterday at the Bar Harbor (Maine) Airport. A United Airlines pilot spent the day with our Boy Scout Troop, instructing them in aviation and taking them up for a flight for their Aviation Merit Badges. This morning I wanted to make a card for the pilot, and decided to combine it with this week’s Global Design Project’s color challenge.
I do not have an airplane stamp in my collection, so I went with another mode of transportation that Joseph loves, which is his bicycle (built for two). We’ll cleverly combine the concept of bicycle to airplane in our note to the pilot!
I didn’t want a lot of color for a “guy card”, so slipped in the Mint Macaron with a little flower punched from the Boho Blossoms Punch, and added a Watermelon Wonder “Blossom Accent” embellishment on top of the punched flower and the flower on the stamp from the “Postage Due” stamp set. I was able to make an envelope for the 5 1/2″ card with Stampin’ Up’s! new Envelope Paper. This was another fun challenge…hope you can give it a try over at http://global-design-project.com/
