Monochromatic Train

Can you tell that I love clean & simple cards? This vintage engine from Clear Dollar Stamps' new Railroad Memories set just lends itself perfectly to this style. I stamped the engine in Baroque Burgundy and sponged around the edges with Desert Sand Memento ink. A few layers, some pearls colored with my R59 Copic marker, some ribbon and my deckle scissors and Voila! A quick and easy card.

I like this card, the background paper is so pretty also. I had fun entering the challenge! Was happy that I could enter even if I don't have any of their stamps yet. Thank you for the nice comments!
