Oldie but a Goodie - Inspired by a Song

This fortnight at Oldie but a Goodie we want to see cards:

'Inspired by a Song'

 Our sponsor for this challenge is:

I've been inspired by the song 'Those magnificent men in their flying machines'...and used a Paper Nest image called 'Aviator Owen', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Travel' pad by American Crafts - I picked this up before Christmas in the clearance section of TKMaxx, but this id the first time I've used any of them :0)
I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen...the sentiment stamp is form the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
