Train-tastic Birthday Card!
Here is a little train birthday card which I have made for two challenges.
Birthday Sundaes Challenge #28 was to create a birthday themed card using buttons. I used buttons from my stash as wheels on the train and its carriage.
Card Positioning Systems had this great sketch that inspired me to do the train on the card.
As soon as I saw the sketch I thought of train tracks for the long strip across the bottom of the card. The engine and the carriage represent two of the squares along the bottom of the sketch.
I had a lot of fun making this card. I used the train from the 'Create a Critter' cartridge which is one of my favourites. I use those images all the time! The smoke from the train is also from this cartridge (it is actually a speech bubble which I used because I thought it looked like smoke from the train!)
The train track came from the 'Everyday Paper Doll' cartridge - I actually had to cut two tracks to get it to fit and then join them together.
Thanks for looking!
