Matthew - New Arrival via Airplane card

Today I bring to you a very special card for the arrival of Matthew to a very special couple.  In just a couple more weeks the arrival of Matthew is planned via a scheduled C-section.  Matthew's parents have been friends with my mom for many many years and I have become close friends with Matthew's mom over the last couple of years. 

I chose to use the airplane from the New Arrival Cricut cartridge because I know that Matthew's room is decorated in planes, trains, and automobiles.  I also tried to best match the color scheme as well.

I used these items to create this card:
  • Design Studio
  • New Arrival Cricut cartridge - plane, banner and clouds
  • Plantin Schoolbook - Matthew on banner
  • foam squares - on plane, banner and clouds
  • Glossy Accents - on the windows of the plane
  • Brad - on the propeller
  • floss - between the plane and banner
  • brown ink - on the edge of the banner
  • My Craft Spot - clear stamps - Inside and Out Set #2 - sentiment inside card, "A baby is a gift from Heaven above...bringing joy down to earth filling hearts full of love."

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my Matthew - New Arrival via Airplane card.
