Red Arrows

My DH recently went to the RIAT (Royal International Air Tattoo) at Fairford with a couple of his friends and his 12 year old god-son. The array of photography equipment that they took with them was eye-popping, and after they got back of course came the task of sorting through the photos. They took over 10,000 photos between them - I swear I'm not exaggerating.

When his god-son's 13th birthday came up, it wasn't difficult to decide on a card, and this week's Sketch Saturday sketch helped it all come together.

I used a free cloud embossing folder that came with a magazine, and which I've been planning to try out for ages. It looks fabulous, doesn't it? The Red Arrows were taken from one of their photos and cut using my Silhouette. How appropriate.

I'm also entering into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge of "anything".
