Fly Away

Good afternoon crafty fellows! Today's post is very special. I'm starting to step out of my comfort zone. Usually, I always go with "pink with lots of frills and pretties", I'm just a girly girl like that!
But today I decided it's time to be brave and try my hands at a more boy-ish card.
And this little cutie turned out

Not girly, not pretty, and not pink!
I've colored the beautiful stamp Fly Away with my watercolor pencils, used paper from my stash and got the White Stars on Navy ribbon from here. The wooden button was a gift from grandma along with other vintage buttons. I think it did a great job holding all the elements together.

Here are a few close ups

This could also fit into the "Patriotic" category with the little boy carrying an airplane and all.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge Blog: Stripes
Brown Sugar Challenge Blog: Boy/ Man
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog: Red, White & Blue

Well, that's it for me today. Now off to color up some more digis!
