Birthday Train

I needed a birthday card for a friends son who's birthday is next week. He's going to be 4. I bought this set off my friend Gabby a while ago when she was having a clear out. This is the first chance I've had to use it.

The card base is chocolate chip. The DP is mounted on green galore and real red was used for the slider. The DP is from a DCWV premium mat stack called Nana's Kids. It's got some pretty papers and they all have either glitter or embossing on each page. The paper I chose has a train on it whoch suited the stamp set perfectly. The image is from Circus Train and the sentiment from Riveting. I used my cuttlebug to cut the slider and threaded twill tape through. The sentiment was punched out with a 1 3/4 inch circle punch. I watercolored the train image and the smoke has both glitter and white gel pen on it although you can't quite tell in the picture. I hope he likes it.
