Boys and Men - Red Baron

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! Today I'm participating in the Boys and Men blog hop over at Capture the moment for Papertrey ink.

Here's the card I came up with.

I used the Fly Away mini stamp set from PTI and colored everything using Copic Markers. I did some fussy cutting and cut the plane and the sentiment banner out so that I could pop it up on the sky back ground. The clouds are done using the Picasso brass stencil, a dauber and Memento summer sky ink.

The scallops are cut from the Quickutz cookie cutter die using pure poppy cardstock. The argyle embossing folder was used on the Blueberry sky cardstock. I did end up using some ribbon (sorry boys) on this to separate the layers, which I just got from Ribbons and Bows Oh My.

Masculine cards are so typically hard to make. I struggle with little boy cards so this challenge was a lot of fun! What do you think?
