Birthday Card

Hello, and Happy Monday!  Today is my not-so-little-anymore brother's birthday.  I wanted to make a really cool birthday card for him.  When he was young, he really loved his train set, so I thought it would be nice to create a card along that theme. 

I used one of my absolutely favourite set from Taylored Expressions All Aboard and the matching die Train Track Border.  The ticket image is from the set Life is a Circus. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches set Birthday Sampler.  The other supplies used are American Crafts - Amy Tangerine paper, clock face from Maya Road, Sunburst Wood Veneer from Studio Calico, and cardstock Hero Arts.

I hope you like the card :)

Have a good week!

This is really a "cool" card. I'm sure it will bring back a lot of memories for him.

Wauw, Kary! This card is absolutely perfect, I think! Love all the details and how it all matches the theme, so cool! The background paper is also so pretty here. I also love trains and stamps with trains. I'm pretty sure your brother really, really liked it!!
Hugs, Wendy
