Plane ATC

Planes, trains, and automobiles was the theme for an ATC mingle the altereddesigns group was having.  I hadn't made any ATCs in a long while, so I thought I would give it a go.
Embossing, burnishing, tissue tape, punches, and doodling - iI felt pretty good about it, until I check the due date for the mingle - it was last Friday.  Ouch!

Stamps are from Close To My Heart.  There is a story about the airplane punch - I bought it on clearance at Michael's a few years back. I used it exactly once, for a small set of airplane inchies.  I had even forgotten that I had it, until someone, googling around for an airplane punch (this one is discontinued), found my blog post about my inchies.  She asked if I would be willing to sell it, so I decided that it needed some love more than it needed to stay at my house.  However, my gut was telling me that if I got rid of the punch, I would surely need some little airplanes, so I punched out about a dozen before I boxed it up and mailed it to her.  This is one of those dozen.

Great ATC, Juliet! So much interest, textures and colors in it too. I like the black theme in each element. Figures about missing the Friday due date. That has happened to me as well. But so glad you finished it and shared it with us!
