All aboard...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Happy Bank Holiday weekend to you all!
I can't believe this is the last day of April! The weather is atrocious here so got housework to do and then I think I will hibernate the rest of the weekend in my craft room!

Not sure what we will end up doing this weekend, but the weather which is just typical isn't conducive to a walk around the garden centre which is what I suspect hubby would love to do.

A card today for a little boy who loves trains.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 deckle edged square Kraft card
2. First layer is gold embossed card.
3. The stripped paper I found in my craft box and adhered at angles after distressing with aged mahogany. 
4. The topper I distressed with stormy sky Distress Ink and adhered to card.
5. To finish off I added the compass and sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar #196 - For the Boys
Creative Fingers #107 - Anything Goes
Jade's Sparkling Challenges #18 - AG/Add a Sentiment
Crafty Girls Creations #18 - Anything Goes
Cre8tive Hands Friends #5 - Anything Goes

Many thanks for visiting today!
