Sale A Bration Perfectly ArtisticThe Skye's The Limit Masculine Birthday Card Stampin Up! UK

Today's card is one that I made for my younger son's 29th Birthday last week.
He loves all things aviation, and was in the Air Training Corps in his teens. Asthma prevented a career in the RAF, but this has not caused his love of all things plane orientated one jot. He particularly loves the vintage armed forces planes, and loves attending the annual season of Air Shows here in the UK

So when Stampin Up! Brought out this limited edition rubber stamp set as part of the Sale A Bration promotion this year.. it was an absolute must have for me.
