I used today's CC (chocolate chip, real red, Bermuda bay) to make my card for the Teapotter challenge. We are sending cards to an injured solider who is receiving medical treatment.
I didn't have a pick up truck to color/cut red, so I used red planes on my card. I stamped a HA aviation bkgrd, LKR grove of trees, Neat & Tangled solid line at bottom, and after placing the die cut planes, clouds and dotty lines. Note that to give some dimension to the card, I cut the planes from a recycled box, then SU real red cardstock and adhered them together.
Greeting inside says:
"Thinking of you from miles away" and a personal message.
Best wishes and prayers for this courageous soldier. :)
Thank YOU for looking today!

Gabby I love the dimension the background stamp and trees give to this terrific card. Your planes are very clever....recycled box!! Your sentiment and message is lovely too. Another wonderful card my friend.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Very nicely done. A bit of a collage bg...awesome.

Awesome card Gabby! You really make the coolest backgrounds! The clouds look wonderful in the Bermuda Bay and the planes are awesome in the real red! The row of trees look fantastic too! I think you should get extra cookies for recycling too!
