Woo Hoo - Cards for Men

This easel birthday card is my submission to the Cards for Men Challenge this week. I used an image from Sunshine Stamps. My grandsons love trains, especially Zerek, so I had to make a train the first digi I purchased from Sunshine. I think men of all ages will admit to liking trains at some time (even as adults).

I used a copper arrow with a screw brad to hold the easel open. It also "points" the way for the train. This was a fun card to make. I find I'm using a lot of orange lately. Maybe I OD'd at Halloween and it has taken almost 6 months to get back to enjoying the color.

A reminder to check out the post below and let me know which sample announcement you like best. I'd appreciate the imput.
