A birthday train.

Good morning friends,
I hope you are all having a good week. We had a long weekend as yesterday was Youth day here in South Africa, so only really getting the week under way now.

This week in the colour challenge at The Outlawz, I was privileged to choose the inspirational photo, colour palette and twist. This was my choice.

Our sponsor for the month is  Stitchy Bear and some of the DT have used their images. They have all made beautiful cards for your inspiration. I would love you to  have a look, then come and join in this fun challenge.

This is my card and the recipe of what I used:

Paper - This was an off cut piece that I matted onto red cardstock.
Image - A new image from Digistamps4Joy and you can find it  HERE  I coloured it with Distress inkpads and cut out with a MFD, inking the edges.
I cut the train using a Marianne Design die and inked the embossing while still in the die.
On the carriages there is place where I will put a name and age, when I give the card.
The puffs of smoke are clouds cut with a Memory box die and I just cut them smaller by hand
3 buttons to finish.

I will enter it in the following challenges:
