A Masculine Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for a friend to give her son. I used Teal card stock with BG's basic white pad DP and the train image is by SU!. I embossed the image with gold ep on black, as well as the sentiment. I used the square lattice ef for the background and used the reverse side because it seemed to match the DP quite well with the small squares. A few square brads and this card was done!
Warm temps (in the 90s) returned to PA a couple days ago, but the temps will plunge over 20 degrees by tomorrow, so I'm enjoying this last hurrah of summer before it's gone! Wishing you all a great weekend!

Last time I said I was first to comment, I was actually 4th or 5th.... (goofy blogger)! This time will just say that I hope you are feeling a bit better and that I am glad to see you creating. That is an awesome sketch you used for this card, Carol. I just love the metallic with the train! Have a pleasant weekend.

Ohh I love the look of the train embossed in gold, Carol!! Great card, awesome colors...I love it!
I'm not sure about anyone else but i'm SO ready for some cooler weather. This 90 degree weather the last few days is crazy! LOL
Happy Saturday, Carol! :)
