Pilin' on Spring

This week at the Pile It On Challenge we're featuring Easter/Spring projects. We're sponsored by Sherri Baldy/My Besties, so I used this little cutie that I won some time ago to make a springtime card:

The little airplane is a wood embellishment that I heat-embossed in silver & trimmed down with scissors. I used one of the Besties from their March Prize Pack for the tiny pilot. Both images are Colored with Copics & glitter/gel pens.The large image is attached with an Action Wobble, so it pops out but folds flat.

I created the border by wrapping Baker's Twine around some flower-shaped brads. I added glitter glue to the flowers' centers. For the sentiment corner, I decorated the brad with pre-made flower pieces and made the banners in InDesign with the Snidely font.

The front is a pre-embossed DP that I've had in my stash forever, as is the patterned cardstock I used for the base.
