One of a Kind

 
The Sea-Tac Airport has some cool ads.  I have snapped a pic a time or two of airport artwork, or the ads. (I am weird sometimes at the subject matter of my pic's.
One is Lane Powell
 (See below)
that inspired this card.
 
Like Hannibal from The A-Team ( 80's TV show reference)
 says,
 "I love it when a plan comes together."
 
For me,
I love it when a card comes together.
I took the Penguin stamp and stamped it on some wheat colored paper, and it was too porous, so I stamped on the back of a dis-card and wouldn't you know it was SOLID.
 
So I trimmed it down, bit my upper lip, crossed my fingers and keep going,
hoping of all hopes,  that the color combo
 I chose would not end up
 in several attempts.  We have all been there....
 
O ' YEAH
 
It came together.. and
I LOVE IT!!
(I hope you likey)
