Come Fly with Me

can you see the plane charm, click to enlarge the photo
 Come fly, let's fly away. Is anybody else humming a Frank Sinatra song?   I love Sinatra, I don't care how old you, you can swing with 'ole blue eyes.  My father was a big fan so we heard Sinatra all the time and as I got older I kept listening. 
I don't know where my brother found this web site but if you are a Sinatra fan you might get a kick out of it.  But I digress...
This week at the Cat's Pajamas the challenge is to use watermelon red, pumpkin orange and grass green.  This is what I came up with.  The goggles are green and parts of the airplane and if you can't tell the red paper is supposed to the inside of a watermelon, those black spots are seeds.  The layout if from this week's Stampin' Royalty sketch challenge.

don't forget the inside

So here's the deets:
stamp -  the Cat's Pajamas "Take Off"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Ranger "Spiced Marmalade" and Scattered Straw"
paper - Stampin' Up "Pumpkin Pie" cs; Neenah Classic Crest Natural White cs; Imaginisce "Berryliscious"
miscellaneous - copics; MFT cloud die-namics; Martha Stewart "Embossed Zig Zag" border punch; baker's twine; charm; felt; mini brads; glaze pen; Nesties label 18; sewing machine

Here's the challenges:
The Cat's Pajamas TCPTUES168 - use Watermelon Red, Pumpkin Orange and Grass Green
