The Little Train That Could

It's that time again where a new challenge begins at 
Dies R Us!
Our theme is 'Planes~ Trains~Automobiles'.
Makes you think of the movie doesn't it?

Grab our Badge!

I started with a crimped background for my cute little
Cheapo Dies Train Engine to sit on.
The balloons are from Sue Wilson shadowbox Collection Celebrations
I just simply adhered them to pieces of twine.
Little Stars are coming out of the smokestack,
I used the tiny star from the Impression Obsession Star Sun Moon set.

I had a clever idea when it came to making the train tracks.
I die cut a Frantic Stamper Rail Fence Ribbon from silver metallic paper.

Then to make it look more like a train track,
I just snipped off the top edges as shown below.

I really liked how this card turned out
and  thinking the train would make an adorable baby boy card too!

Here once again are all the dies I have used.

Thanks for visiting with me and pop on over to
the Dies R Us challenge blog to see all the fabulous creations by my teamies!!

OMG, this is so cute! I love how you did the train tracks from a fence, but my favorite part of the whole thing is how you used the stars for smoke. Dang! Really, the whole card is just adorable!
