Challenge #327 - Things that Fly - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well my cold has almost dried up though its left me with a chesty cough I hope it wont belong before that disappears to as Im still waiting to be signed of from the optician over my cataract op, I also have to get my teeth sorted (plate) I put if off while I have had this bug didnt think it was fair to pass it onto them.
Anyway this weeks Challenge is all about

"Things that Fly"

 Im sure among all crafting goodies you must own something that could be used for this theme, it could be a kite, swing, bird, fairy even a plane, the choice is yours and we all look forward to seeing what you eventually come up with.
But firstly before I show you my card you will want to know who our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you don't, they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation don't you think.
And here is the image I decided to use:-


this is "The beautiful Flight Attendant" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a rectangle Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a fancy one out of blue card for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash which has been stamped and then mounted on another die from the same die set as the mount for the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card which was then mounted with a dark blue card the same I used for the image, the backing paper is also from the same image set as the main one and you will find it here.
I then placed my mounted image towards the left at a angle to copy the tag behind it, and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used some embellishments and placed them down the right hand side.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will take part in our "Things that Fly" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
