My Time to Craft - Guest Design Team Card - 16 February 2013

Here is my week 3 card as Guest Design Team Member for My Time to Craft.  The challenge topic for this week is "for men only" so this means it is a card for man to receive only.
For my birthday card I have used Joanna Sheen's "Times Gone By" CD.  I chose this gorgeous image of the children watching the steam train going by.  The backing papers are from the CD as well and I have just inked the edges.
It is an 8x8 card and I have decorated all four sides of the card to make it special.  I have used various toppers that came on the sheet along with using Kanban ticket stamps to make some tickets (well on a train you need tickets don't you??) and used some sentiments from a Debbi Moore magazine.
Other items the card has been finished off with are ribbon and buttons.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge - Vintage/shabby chic
LEJ Designs - For someone special
Shopping Our Stash - They say it's your birthday (my used up stash is the ribbon and buttons which I've had for some years now)
Charisma Cardz - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - For the men
