Red, white and blue

I love using red, white and blue colors, those are also the colors of the Norwegian flag.
But it's not my go to colors for simple designs. I've attempted to keep it CAS, don't know if there's enough white space, but once I ha rummaged through my stash of dies and decided what supplies to use the card came together really quickly.
I used a Tim Holtz globe die, a Die-Version one for the airplane and one from MFT for the stitched borders.
I heat embossed a Tim Holtz sentiment onto vellum.

This card is for:
Cards in Envy - RED WHITE BLUE
Less Is More - Colours of your Flag
Shopping Our Stash - #310 Flag Day

    The vellum gives a sort of misty effect, like looking through clouds . It all works well in red, white and blue ( a colour combo that also seems very popular for flags!).

    Always love to see you at SOS... I know you have quite a stash! This is just another superbly-balanced creation, my friend! The way you have the globe off at an angle and the plane where it is truly gives the impression of motion. Love the clean appearance. XO
