Another birthday and a challenge

Hi Guys,

I've had fun playing with some more challenges. I needed to make a card for a 3yo and was going to use last week's Mojo Monday sketch again (see this post, 2nd card) however I came upon the Sweet Sunday challenge which was to use a favourite past sketch. I already had in mind making a card with a rectangle panel using 'Choo Choo' so searched til I found a suitable sketch.

This is the one I decided on:

And my card:

I am so in love with this Celebrations DSP for boy's cards. I will need to order more 'Pacific Point' & 'Real Red' CS as I think I'll be using it a lot. The hills are cut from 'Pear Pizazz' CS layered over 'Bashful Blue'. I did the grass with the 'Wonderfully Worn' BG stamp, another new love. The '3' is made using my Big Shot. I always think "can I be bothered using it to cut out just one thing", but with my fairly organised stamping area it takes less than 5 mins to do, so very easy. The track is from the 'Right on track' wheel, so cute.

I covered the train windows & my '3' with Crystal Effects. Only prob is that I sat something down unintentionally on the card before the windows were quite dry so they're not real smooth, DUH!!! The ribbon is retired, it came wrapped around a free stamp set that i received at Convention. Waste not... I wish they had Pacific Point ribbon in the new catty, oh well.

Must keep moving. I am hoping to post another card I made for the JAI challenge.

catch ya,

You are on such a roll! This is such a great card, great colours and wonderful layout. Perfect for a three year old. And you've used one of my new favourite colours, Pear Pizazz....just yummy. Have to agree with Andrea about Pacific Point, I gave all of mine away and never used it, pretty bad hey. But it sure looks fabulous here. Oh, and the windows were meant to be that way, weren't they :) That's what I always say when I have a bit of a boo-boo. Xox
