Mouse in a Plane!

 
     Since I had to have most things shut down, last night, due to storms in the area, I decided to play at my table with a new die I recently purchased.  This card sort of just happened. 

     I started with a white base, added designer paper from Doodlebug Designs, and an embossed panel of clouds, which I made up during a visit to my DD's craft room.  Then came my new airplane die which is a Die-namics from MFT.  I decided to cut it out 3x so that I could off set layers and give it a little more dimension with the colors.  Next came my little clouds which I popped up on dimensionals.  The background and clouds were sponged with Smoky Slate ink.

     The next dilemma was who should drive the plane!  As I went through my stash of critters, I was so hoping I could insert a Weenie dog, but nope.  I came across a Cocoa mouse set from Sweet n Sassy, and decided here was my victim.  This Cocoa was from the set called Springtime Cocoa, as is the sentiment.  I colored him with Copic markers and planted him in the plane.

     When I bought the airplane die, I was surprised at how large it was, when it arrived!  Since I work in mostly A2 size, I was not able to fly the banner behind the plane!

     Since all of the die cuts and clouds were made from snippets in the scrap bin, I am entering this card over at Pixie's Snippets Playground.

     We are expecting more storms today, so I will be in and out.  I am ready for the cooler weather which is on it's way.  Whatever you do today, be safe and enjoy!

Wow, this is really, really cute! The plane die is awesome and the mouse is a perfect fit for the pilot. Your background choice and added cloud die cuts are perfect. You could float the banner to the inside with the sentiment. Great job!
