Romancing the Train

Fashionable Stamping Challenge continues to be one of my favorite Challenge sites.  The Design Team has inspired me to grow my card making skills and I love the variety of challenges.  Speaking of which, it is time once again for a new challenge!  This time, the challenge is to create a project using "Trains, Planes or Automobiles."  Now while this tends to get me thinking of masculine type cards, I recalled this beautiful image by Crafty Individuals, and just could not resist incorporating it into my design.     They say a picture tells a thousand words, and when I look at this image, I just start thinking of their story and the role the train in the background played in it.  The stamped images are from various plates by Sam Poole.  Love her images!  A little hardware from Idea-ology, some black Liquid Pearls, and a touch of vintage black seam binding.  You will be delighted with what my Design Team sisters have created to inspire you, and we sure hope you will submit a creation of your own.  There's a prize for the top winner!  Thanks as always for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne
