Birthday Boy - Train Card


The challenge on the Bitten By The Bug site this week was to use this little train from the New Arrival cartridge. I cut it at 4", the gifts are from various cartridges and the sentiment is from two Studio G stamps. I added the giant buttons for wheels to give it a bit of oomph! I did have fun using all these really bright primary colours together to catch a childs eye. I left the little star blank so that I can write the name of the child on it before I mail it.
