Celebrate Your Day - 3rd Birthday Train Card

Hi Friends,

I needed a card for a very special little guy...he loves trains, planes, automobiles...pretty much anything that moves. It gave me the opportunity to pull out my train die I used often when my little short stack was living, thinking, and breathing trains. Lots of memories flooded back as I created this card. Made me smile!

Well, I know you aren't here for my walk down memory lane! :-)))

Here you go!
The dies are from Quickutz and I believe are retired. I was just thinking about putting these up for sale, but I am glad I still had them.  I first die-cut chipboard from an old cracker box, and then die-cut the cardstock and layered them for dimension and stability. 
I used a stitched label from My Creative Time as well as their stitched stars.   The sentiment is from Paper Sweeties So Sweet of You.  

Inspiration for this card was found at Seize the Birthday - Stitching, Just Be Creative - March Linky Party, Sunday {Fun}day - March Linky Party, D.L. Art - March Linky Challenge, The Shabby Tea Room - Anything Goes.

I hope you have a colorful Tuesday!
~Tammy~

Uh-dorable! So fun and bright, and I know your little buddy must have loved this! Love all the detail on here, and that train is just fabulous. The primary color scheme is so perfect for a little guy. I know what you mean about memories...I can still remember when my boy was into trains...my word, we had Thomas stuff everywhere back in those days. :)
