Little Boy Blue

K, you know how I'm not the biggest fan of making the male card? Well, if they could all just be this easy & come out like this, I'd have no problem at all.  When I saw that this airplane set was being released by Papertrey, I thought, well, there's $5 (yes, $5!) I don't have to spend.  But then I had this feeling that I should go ahead & get it, just in case.  Now, I know you're probably thinking I say that about all of their sets.  But no, I really do have some sort of self control.*  Now, if you were to ask me about the argyle set...the second I saw that one, I knew I had to have it. I love this set! Oh, the color combinations! Consider yourself warned: you will be seeing plenty of this set in the future.

Oh, and just a little FYI for my mom and anyone else who hasn't done this yet. The clouds (how cool are they?!) are a scalloped circle that I cut in half. Then, I just sponged blue ink over the edge of the scallops onto my white paper. Easy peasy!

Stamps: A Little Argyle & Fly Away (PTI), Ink: Spring Rain & Enchanted Evening (PTI), Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: white, Spring Rain & Enchanted Evening (PTI), Accessories: scallop punch (SU!), Copics~B41

*This is a total lie. I have zero self control. I love PTI. If I don't own it, I must not be in love with it. And even then, I will probably own it one day anyway.

I have no control where PTI is concerned either. You've done an awesome job of using that outline image in a very CAS, wonderful way...which makes me want it even more. Shame on you. *wink*

Cutest darned card ever! Thanks for explaining the clouds, which I LOVE. And really love the argyle! I would not have imagined getting excited about an airplane set, either, but this surely is adorable.
