Airplane Birthday

Entering this card in the following two challenges:
Allsorts: Things With Wings
Less is More: Up in the Air

How perfect!!!
I had a card order for a little boy who was turning 7 and loves jets.
To start, I went through my stash and found this cute airplane diecut so built the card around that.

The base is blue card stock.
The white layer is embossed with dots that I rubbed ink over.
I stamped "Happy Birthday" directly on that.  (It's an acrylic set I got at Michael's.)
I put stickers on the airplane to look like windows and they have the birthday boy's name.
I added his age on the tail.  
The big cloud was traced from a stencil.  The small cloud I cut free hand.  I dabbed ink on them too and I used pop dots under them to make them stand out.
That's it for a nice personalized birthday card.

Thanks for swinging by!
