Choo Choo Full of Love
I have been wanting to make some brads like the ones Carol from Our Little Inspirations makes for a lot of her cards. They are punched circles and then covered with glossy accents. How easy is that! Carol's always look so real (as in.. from the craft store). Plus, you can use paper to match the rest of your card. Also, they are easy for mailing. Of course, that won't help me any as I have three layers of the train and a thick train track to mail. So, the post office will get plenty for my card. Yikes!
My card fits several challenges:
QFTD45 on Splitcoaststampers. The Queen this week is Heather aka Isaiah40:31. I decided to case this card. I tried to keep the sketch and then added a sun and sentiment at the bottom.
Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge at Marks Finest Papers is to make a Valentine card. Just what I needed!
