There's a train coming.....

Spent all morning putting in tile in the bathroom, felt that was as good an excuse as any to get to spend some time in my craft room!  As if I need an excuse!  LOL.  Anyway.......I have no "male" cards left in my stash (and you know how lonely those 'female' cards get)  :)   I decided I needed to get cracking and this is what I came up with..................
Both the image and the background paper are digi's from Create with TLC.  Aren't they just wonderful!  Paulette gives away an amazing number of digi's (she loves vintage) and word art.  She always seems to know just what I am trying to say, LOL. 

The train image is printed and colored twice with one copy popped onto of the first at the front of the train up flat on the paper at the back.  Sort of looks like it is coming out of the page.  It image is colored with what else:  my copics.  The bakers twine is from the twinery and the button from my stash.

This card may be entered in the following challenges:
Aly's Sunday Challenge:  Bakers twine
Digi Doodle Shop:  Anything Goes
Creative Friday:  Open Theme
Paper Cutz Challenge:  Anything Goes
