This is for today's sketch challenge and the teaparty challenge this week, cards with a flight theme, to encourage a young man named Sean.
These balloons represent all the "hot air" Brooke the crook used to get the poor Wright brothers signed up for her bogus flight school - poor guys, now instead of getting a diploma in Google Air Traffic Control, they're looking into a Becoming a Pilot in One Easy Lesson degree, as advertised in an e-mail they found in their spam this morning.
I sponged the clouds with a cloud made with a PTI die. The sentiment is also stamped on clouds using the same die. I added two strands of twine instead of ribbon, trying to keep the card more masculine. That panel is popped up to give room for the thick twine behind it and the sentiment clouds are popped up too.
The hot air balloons are from a PTI set for use with buttons.
