Hope your 18th birthday ...

... gets off to a flying start.

This is the 18th birthday card that I made for one of my great nephews who is having flying lessons. I've incorporated a picture of him in a plane although it's too small to actually see that it's him! It's his birthday today, so, hopefully, he's now seen this in reality.

The background paper is Crafts House retro brown and the blue strip with semi circles is October Afternoon Charles. I also used the offcut of 18 card that I've had for a long time, as well as the torn sentiment strip and corrugated card under the picture of the plane which is raised up with 3D foam. The chipboard medallion has been waiting to be used, with the addition of the numbers stuck on.

This is an 8 x 8 card. The yellow writing on the picture (added digitally) is a lot clearer in real life than it is here.
