Love Is in the Air...

... even after 33 years.

So, today's card is an anniversary card for hubby and was inspired by both the current CAS-ual Fridays (Dies Only) Challenge and the art of Saul Bass. (Yep, that Hitchcock course is really getting to me. LOL)

Stampin' Up! neutrals and vellum (for the overlays atop the heart contrails)
Lawn Fawn plane and simple and Paper Smooches super dies

In addition to going for a strong visual design, I wanted to achieve dimension. So the buildings are inset and the plane (and its contrails) are raised. I debated over whether to make the contrails red, but decided to stick with the gray/black/white color scheme. After all, this is for manly-man hubby. The less fuss, the better.  :)

Think I'll share this over at the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.

Parting Thoughts

Short and sweet tonight. Just a quick reminder that our Words 2 Craft By Challenge is open through Wednesday... with a chance to win $10 to the online retailer of your choice. 

Have a great week! Until next time, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'.  :)


  1. What a great card Sybrina! Love the concept of no stamping...dies only!

  2. I love this little scene you have created sybrina, the cute aeroplane and the trail of love hearts, I was thinking you had used brown and cream until I read your post.saying it was grey black & white but it looks just as beautiful and I am sure your hubby will love it all the same. Thank you for your kind words too.
