Card Sketch Challenge #273




This is my card for yesterday's Card Sketch Challenge. I have been having trouble with my feet lately and was at the doctors and was not able to get it uploaded til now. I have air socks (like mini air casts) to wear until my orthopodic inserts come in. I am feeling much better wearing these. Yay.



Anyhow......I had this idea to do with this cute caboose. So I was happy it worked with this sketch. I used this cute new release CUTE CABOOSE from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.


I paper toled the caboose and used glaze for the windows. To do the puppy, I placed a piece of copy paper under the window and stamped the puppy over it so I just got his head. The punch I used under the caboose is a Christmas punch by EK Success called Icecycles. I use it for grass all the time, though it does make a nice fence, doesn't it?!
