Choo Choo!

Hello and a Happy Sunday to you all!
Having finally managed to shake a nasty migraine, I decided to try anything too ambitious, so I opted for this very quick and simple card for mum to give to my uncle, who is a steam train fanatic!

It's actually a Kanban sheet (1st time I've ever used one of these) and was pretty easy to make.  I  mdke the base card from a piece of Kraft card, popped out the pyramage pieces and matted/layered them onto some silver mirri-card and more Kraft card. I attached them with some small black brads. I die-cut the letters using my Bigshot and Quickutz 'Maggie' set of dies. I finished it off with some silver thread tied down the spine.

Thanks for popping in today!
