I love the way Poppy Parade looks on kraft card stock and it's the perfect colour choice for this plane. It took me several goes to work out how to make a Red Arrows-style trail, but I found Whisper White craft ink and a sponge dauber did the trick.
Here's a close up of that fabulous plane! I added a sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays hostess set and scored a line to extend it across the width of the card.
Here's a landscape version I tried out with an ordinary trail - after all there are some occasions where a heart trail wouldn't be entirely appropriate!
Here's what you'll need to make today's cards:
Stamps: Need for Speed, Happiest of Birthdays
Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White craft ink
Card stock: Crumb Cake
Other: Poppy Parade marker, sponge dauber, white gel pen, Simply Scored, stamp-a-majig

Thank you so much to everyone who has left me birthday wishes over the last few days. It's lovely of you and I've felt very touched. On Saturday I told you I was being taken away for the weekend and (after a shaky start where we sat on the motorway with a load of other cars!) we ended up in the beautiful Wye valley - an area I've always wanted to visit and for some reason never have. We all had the most wonderful time and were incredibly lucky with the weather considering a lot of the UK was sat under a very slow-moving band of rain. I'll leave you with a photo that sums up my weekend...
I hope you had a great weekend - and if you're in the UK, are continuing to have a lovely time despite the wet weather that lots of us are having. I'll be back tomorrow with a little patriotic glamour so do join me if you have a minute!
