Little engines can do big things

I’ve a card featuring a cute Tiddly Inks’ image, The Conductor, to share today.

This is for my nephew who turned six this week and I’ve made it following the current sketch at Die Sketchtanten.  To go with my train theme I used some Tim Holtz Journaling Tickets for one of the layers and selected my papers to represent the red check hankie train drivers have in the movies and grey stripes to represent train tracks.

Over at Fab’n’Funky they are looking for cards featuring kids at play, which my image certainly shows, so I am linking up my card there.  Southern Girls have stripes as their theme, I have them aplenty, in my designer paper, my flair button embellie and drawn on my image for the little boy’s outfit.
