Thank you airplanes

I made this card today as a thank you for a good friend of my late husband.  He had not heard that he was gone and sent a CD with a video he took at an airshow of the Thunderbirds, along with a lovely song he had written.  He is a very good songwriter.   They met many years ago when my husband taught him to fly.  I wrote a personal note inside, giving him the sad news.

I love this marbled cardstock because it really looks like sky and makes a great background for airplanes.  The airplanes are a wood mounted rubber stamp that I bought at a used stamp sale.  It has no brand name on it, but it does have a $2 sticker on it so that must be what I paid for it.  The sentiment is a clear stamp that I won from Operation Write Home.  Both stamps are stamped directly onto the marbled cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
