Fly Away

Sooooo, after watching Top Gun (for the umpeenth time - I don't even object to the fact that this film has Tom Cruise in it, nor that he rides a motorbike without a helmet - stupid boy!), I remembered that I had this little LOTV stamp, and I was on a bit of a cardmaking spree, so the two naturally collided into a card. 

I stamped this little dude with blank memento ink and then coloured him up with promarkers (although I am still preferring my distress inks :-/).  I knew I was going to make this into a card for a boy, so I used lots of bright colours.

I had coloured in mind with using some LOTV paper for the card, but then when I was searching through my papers box, I came across some docraft papers.  They are supposedly Christmas papers, but there is not a Christmas icon on any of them, so they make perfect boy papers.

I used some spotty and some stripey with the same colourways as I love spots and stripes together, put one at my standard jaunty angle and fixed it all to some red card.

To finish, I stamped an LOTV sentiment onto some red card and fixed it in some white space on the card.

Et voila!

I would like  to enter this card into the following challenges:
