Mystery Train

Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful Father's Day!  This was the card I made for my father this year.  Our entire family is going vacationing together this summer, taking the Whistler Rocky Mountaineer for a 4 day holiday.  It was my dad's idea since my boys are gaga over trains.  I thought this would be perfect.  The train is a Tim Holtz image and the sentiment is from a Stamping Up retired set, All Year Cheer.  It was embossed in silver for a little texture.  Really quick since I'm still supposed to be finishing report cards.  Grrr.
