Simply Create Challenge 46 - Wings

Welcome to another Simply Create challenge! The theme this fortnight is:


But I've interpreted it slightly differently as you can see! I've made a shaped helicopter card using the template from Polkadoodles Paper Boutique Vol 3. The wings element is the flying aspect of the helicopter! I've used the A5 pre coloured template, cut all the shapes out and then layered up using foam pads.

The helicopter is attached with a strip of acetate and helps to support the card with its 'feet'. Hope you can join in the challenge this fortnight -for more details, please visit the challenge blog! Good luck!

And if you've not already popped over to the Fetch A Sketch pre launch party - please do so! Some candy on offer to two lucky commenters plus some extra prizes along the way! The Fetch A Sketch challenges launch on Monday 27 June at 9am!

My card fits the following challenges:

Dutch Dare Card Challenges: For The Boys
Meljiens Designs: Red, White and Blue
Shelly's Images: Men / Boys
Bloggers Challenge: Its Manly, Baby!

  • All paperbased items: Polkadoodles Paper Boutique Vol 3
  • Acetate: My stash
