Aeroplane Birthday

Something a little bit different for me today...I was asked to make an 80th birthday card for a gentlemen...his interests were listed as: mechanical things; aeroplanes; and war 'stuff'! I didn't have any suitable stamps...or papers...so after a bit of Googling I set about trying to make a plane using some of my circle Nesties and a corner rounder punch! I picked card in RAF blue for the plane...adding some light grey 'windows' and darker grey 'engines'! For the background, I used some sky blue card, adding some die cut clouds (Memory Box 'Puffy Clouds'), then simply added some die cut numbers (Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet).
