Father's Day Card ~ World's Best {3rd Post}

Hi everyone. I hope your week has been a good one.
I wanted to play along with a few challenges with this card.
It needed to include wings, transportation, blue, 
and be a manly type card that celebrates Dad.
I started by inking up this great airplane embossing folder. 
When I trimmed down the embossed panel I was careful to leave one 
of the airplanes in tacked so it could be used as an embellishment.
With this sentiment the card could easily be used for 
Father's Day, a birthday or just to let that special guy know you care. 

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Sentiment from the World's Best stamp set from Verve Stamps{retiring}
*Banner cut using the Award Banner Trim Die from Verve Stamps.
*Embossed using the airplane folder from the Cuttlebug Skyward set.
*Circles cut using the We R Memory Keepers/Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles die set.
*CTMH Star Spangled Blue stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
