Happy Birthday to Choo!

At AiFactory Challenges were asking you to Use Your Favorite Embellishment.You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday July 6th to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

For my card I’ve used Toy Train Clipart.As you can see I’ve flipped the image as  I felt it looked better that way.That’s the beauty of digital images.I then decided to coat the image in clear ultra thick embossing enamel.It’s so much easier than using normal embossing powder  as you don’t have to keep layering it up to get the result you want.As for my favorite embellishment…well…it had to be… BUTTONS!Love ’em.I managed to sneak in some baker’s twine.I couldn’t have put them on my card naked!!
