Train Trip!

Another card using GKD's "Life is Good" set by Theresa Momber....just can't help myself...still have so many ideas rolling around in my head with this set!

This is for Jennie' Sketch Challenge over on STV. 

DH and I dream about one day taking the big road trip across the USA. Two things we especially want to do are:  take the famous glass-top train ride in Alaska to see the bears catching salmon plus view the countryside and the train trip through the Grand Canyon!!! hopefully.. before we are both using motorized wheelchairs  LOL

cardstock: GKD's cranberry, black and SU's pumpkin, dp is stash
ink: memento rhubarb, black, bamboo
embellishment: MS punch, twine
technique: colored train with Copics C3, C5, C7 and SU choc marker, light sponging with SU Old Olive and Saffron, clear embossed sentiment

oh, and front of train is raised for dimension!

Have a blessed day - supposed to be sunny and in the 50s here in Virginia....hope those of you snowed in are enjoying stampin and getting ready for Christmas!!

Hi Linda,
This is a stunning card. The train is so well done. Funny you want to go to Alaska because my hubby has always wanted to take a cruise up the Alaskan coast to see the whales and sealife. You never know we might meet D.V.

You are just so amazing Linda. This is another fabulous card. It really stands out. I agree with Patti. When you travel out our way, you must stop here so we can meet you. You will love traveling on the train.
