Birthday Train

Hi everyone! Did you hear? The Little Miss Muffet Stamps Train Challenge has been extended over on Face Book. So I thought I would create another 1st birthday card using the custom train I was given. This time I created one for a boy. The sketch I used is from the challenge over on the  Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge blog.


The colors that I used are from the 300th challenge celebration over at Cupcake Inspirations.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens.

I started with a pool blue card base. I added a piece of blue and lime green plaid patterned paper backed in white card stock. Down the center I added a strip of lime green dot patterned card stock and then I punched a strip of white card stock using the cherish border punch from Martha Stewart.  I added a piece of blue star washi tape to the middle of the punched white strip and then added it down the middle of the lime green dot card stock.  I backed the image in pool blue and white card stock.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
