A little while ago it was my friends little boys birthday, and he is mad about trains, so it made this card from him.

As usual the image was a colouring page that I found on the internet, and I have coloured the image with promarkers using the colours of the backing paper.  Before I printed the image, I added 'Lewis is 2' to the smoke coming out of the funnel of the train, using Paintshop Pro.

The backing paper is from the DCWV that I have had for ages, and the little blue punch train boarder, was made with a MS train punch.  It was one of the punches that I bought in the States last summer because my youngest son Jack wanted it.  Needless to say this is the first time it has been used!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
