Birthday card for a little boy

Well, recently I did a card class with the theme of birthday cards. Here is the card we did for little boys, although given my little girls recent obsession with trains, it will work well for anyone I suspect.

I used the Papertrey Ink set Train Tracks and the matching die. I will also confess, the entire card is very much inspired by Maile Bells card using this set. I struggle with little boy themed things (daughter and 2 nieces - give me a break!) and needed something quick, colourful and simple for the ladies in the class to make, and this fit the ticket!

Quite colourful, which is always a challenge for me. I used SU whisper white, pacific point and crumb cake, and retired past SU in colours of cranberry crisp and morning marigold. I coloured the cut out train using some assorted copic markers after I stamped it in an early espresso ink colour.

Now I just need a cute little nephew to give this card to! Hint hint to my sister or brother!!!
