Choo Choo for a birthday boy!

Yesterday I posted the baby girl card I made for Monday's CAS challenge. Well, today I'm sharing the boy card I made with a brand new set called Choo Choo! It will be available for purchase from Stampin' Up! beginning April 1st in the new Occasions Mini Catalog. Here are the adorable shoes I got my inspiration from.

I wasn't sure if this qualified as a CAS card, but honestly it only has the one layer (plus the cupcake). The cupcake was colored with markers then I did cut it out, but it is not hard and took only a minute or less. I did cut a slit in the train piece so the cupcake would slide right in! I was tempted to do so much more- add a matching ribbon or some brads for wheels, or even some paper piercing, but I resisted!

So, hope you are having a great day! If you haven't yet tried the CAS challenges, you should. They are fun and just might add a new twist to your stamping!

Thanks for visiting!
