Dueling Darlings Fly Away

Happy middle of the month! It;s the 15th already and time to post with the Dueling Darlings. We are divided into 2 teams: the Divas and the Dazzlers. I am part of the Dazzlers team. Our hostesses this month were LJ for the Divas and Darlene for the Dazzlers. Here's what Darlene wrote for this challenge kit:
Did you know that November is National Aviation Month? November is dedicated to exploring, recognizing and celebrating America's Great contributions and achievements in the development of aviation. LJ & I decide it would be a great theme!
Kit Contents:
"Sky is the Limit" images by SU! Stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on SU Very Vanilla cardstock.
Sentiments are also from that set and stamped with Memento on Very Vanilla.
DP from "Going Places" pack by SU!
The embossed folder is "World Traveller" by SU! on "Pool Party" cardstock, also by SU!
The polka for ribbon is by SU!, all other embellishments are from Darlene's stash.
Here's my card.

I loved the map paper that Darlene included. All the paper's were really cool. I die cut the image with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Diamond die. I inked around the image with Salty Ocean distress ink and a scalloped edge circle for the look of clouds. The sentiment I die cut with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitch Rectangles. The arrows were part of a ribbon but since it has these awesome arrows I wanted to see the arrows so I cut them apart and used them as embellishments. I also added a few gem stones and a heart that were included in the kit. I used light blur cardstock as the card base and black cardstock as a layer. Thanks to Darlene for the wonderful kit this month. Please check out the other wonderful creations by the team.

I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch as inspiration for my card. I am also entering Seize the Birthday challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today. Thanks to all the Darlings who I've gotten to know this past year. It's been wonderful!
