Birthday in the Clouds

I made this card for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge: Background Stamping with Sentiment Stamps.

I stamped "It's Your Day" from Think Big Favorites 2 on a white card base in blue ink. I didn't want the sentiment to be too overpowering, so I used a piece of blue tinted vellum as a sky overtop. I stamped one of the planes from the Fly Away mini set, along with the banner and sentiment and fussy cut them out. Just as I glued the plane to the vellum I realized I should have used pop dots to attach it. Ah well. I punched out clouds from white cardstock and thick vellum and glued those down as well. Finally I used glue under the clouds and airplane to attack the vellum panel to the card base. 

The vellum clouds are hard to see in the picture above, so here's a side detail.
