Hi Everyone, firstly I have to apologise for being AWOL with my comments, I have had a few things going on, and it has made it less time for me on the 'puter. I hope to be seeing you all soon. I am keeping up with my DT work at least, and making family cards, this is one of them made recently.
Our Great Nephew is an ardent Railway fan and Volunteers for the Gwili Railway. His 20th birthday came up, and of course it had to be a card with a train on. I had forgotten I had a cut file, so off I went and cut the engine out of vinyl, added it to the card, I think you can just about make out the shine of the vinyl. I stencilled clouds and blended green onto the card. Furthermore, I'm happy to say he was pleased with it.

Awesome train card! Love the boldness. So wonderful your nephew is a volunteer. Must be wonderful to take an old fashioned train ride!
What a great card, Faith! I've never seen vinyl on a card before and I love it. I can see the shine and it's so beautifully black! The ticket is the perfect addition! :o)
Wow, what a striking card and fantastic use of the vinyl really makes the image pop along with that luscious green and those fluffy clouds.
Wow Faith, this is a very cool birthday card! I love that train cut out, it is amazing. Love your sky and both sentiments, the one on the side is so cool looking and the one on the ticket it so fun! Love, love, love this card!!! Hugs, Brenda
First of all..... I LOVE that you cut the engine out of vinyl! What a great idea! Loved your card.
Second..... thank you for the comments you leave on my blog. You have no idea how much they encourage me.
Lastly.... I can't believe you've never heard the term, "Happy as a clam." Maybe it's a southern thing. I hear it quite often, and say it occasionally.
Have a great day! Hugs!!
really fabulous card for your nephew, faith. i bet he loved it!
Beautiful work! Love the locomotive design and so sure your nephew will love it!
Love, love, love this train. My hubby's family all went to Purdue and they have a train theme at the school. This is just fantastic.
It looks like that train is flying right off the card! Fabulous plus!!
Wow, this is a powerful masculine card. I just love the sense of movement and solidity in this image. I bet your Great Nephew was delighted to get this card.
