Transport

Good morning everyone.
Another Tuesday so time for a new challenge for you from Cardz4Guyz. Thanks for all your fab CAS cards from last week, though some of the entries weren't exactly CAS, there were some great entries and it wasn't an easy task to choose the top 3. Pop over and check who the winners were.
This time we would like to see your masculine projects and cards on the theme of -

TRANSPORT

A very masculine topic I think.
I have used up my stash of child's birthday cards and I know there is one birthday in particular coming up and he is obsessed with trains so that was where I went with this Molly Bloom train card.


For the layout I used the latest sketch over at Sketch Saturday


The pennant in the middle reminded me of the disappearing lines of train track so that was perfect!
I cut the pennant to echo the angle of the sleepers in the train from a NitWits 'Finncy's Garden' green paper mounted on white and used co-ordinated papers for the background panel and strip. 
I coloured the train with Copics to match the red in the strip and then fussy cut it out. I know you can't see any, they just happen to be behind the pennant!
I put the '6' on the other side of the sketch as it was to crowded on the side in the sketch.
The sentiment is from a Woodware set stamped in black on white and glued flat.
The overall effect is of the train coming out of a tunnel of green I think.

OK, that's all for now. Checkout the rest of the DT and GDT's inspiration over at the Cardz4Guyz blog and join us.

I would like to join in the fun at -
