You are "Plane" Amazing

Happy Wednesday! We're back safely from our holiday in the Dominican where we had an AMAZING time! It's time for another challenge at Little Red Wagon and I'm thrilled to be this week's hostess. I've chosen the theme "It's clear to me" and I'm asking that you pull out your transparency or acetate - or include a window - for your creation.

For my card, I went with some transparency for the front. I have to admit that Mandy (Happy Scrappin') taught this technique in a card class years ago - so the idea is all hers! The plane image is adhered to the front of the clouds whereas the sentiment is inside. However, because of the transparency, the sentiment can still be seen. I gave this card to our pilot once we landed safely. (Actually, I gave it to a flight attendant to pass along.) Whenever I fly, I like to give the pilot a thank you card as I can't imagine the task of being responsible for so many souls.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "clear" project! We can't wait to see what you create!

Products used:

The transparency is left-over from my teaching days when overhead machines were still used!

I was just checking the Little Red Wagon Challenge today, and saw your wonderful card. I just love the plane soaring through the clouds on that acetate. Love the sentiment inside. Great design, wonderful take on the challenge. Thanks for sharing this terrific idea.

It may be someone else's idea, but you have carried it out beautifully and what a lovely gesture to give it to the pilot after flying with him. LOVE the card.
