Scenic Route

 When hubby and I are going somewhere and it is a long drive, we always try to find "the scenic" route. This usually ends up being the no highways way to go and we have seen some beautiful scenery and found some hidden gems over the years. 

It is always fun to find a hidden gem and then go back to it when we have time to spend there ..... on a different road trip of course <wink> It is these road trips that were the inspiration for this card featuring "Choo Choo" from High Hopes. 

After stamping this cutie and colouring it with Copic markers I hand fussy cut it and ran a black marker around the edge to get any white I had missed. I wanted to include a railroad track on my card but I didn't have a die for that so I used a curved edge die to cut the rails and then decided the width of the cross pieces and cut them to fit. I added some trees and clouds to help create my scene. I added my stamped image last and popped him up with some foam pop dots. 

After stamping the sentiment I cut it to size and mounted it on matching card stock. Some enamel dots finish off my card.
