Time to Sale-A-Brate!

It's Sale-A-Bration time with Stampin' Up!  I love this time of the year - place an order and get free stuff!  I was so happy to get my order last week :)  We had a huge snow storm, so the weekend was spent playing with my new goodies :)

I'm happy to be joining the Sisters-In-Stamping on some more weekly challenges!  Today's challenge was to create something to celebrate Sale-A-Bration!

I knew as soon as I saw the Sky Is The Limit set that I had to have it.  My FIL loves planes, especially older ones.  So, I thought I'd use this set for my card this week.

Here it is:

I also knew I had to have the beautiful Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.  It's so beautiful in person.  Both the paper and set are available for a limited time only, so get it before it's gone if you like them!

I stamped the airplane image and sentiment on some silver cardstock using black StazOn ink.  I cut out the airplane.  I ran the sentiment piece in the Banner Triple Punch and put three silver brads on it.

I ran the Crushed Curry DSP through the Big Shot using the new Sunburst Thinlet Die - isn't it awesome?  I adhered the sunburst to a piece of Soft Sky DSP and used Dimensionals to pop up the plane and banner. 

I'm sorry the sentiment is so hard to read.  It was really hard not to get a reflection; the hardships of photographic shiny paper!

Anyway, I'm happy with the way my card turned out and I know my FIL will love it.  I feel like the airplane is bursting out of the sky and sun's rays and shouting "Happy Birthday!"

Thanks so much for looking and please check out the cards the lovely ladies of Sisters In Stamping created!
