The run away train

   My great nephew will turn one a little later in the year and I thought this digi train from Little Miss Muffet was just the thing. I coloured it using Promarkers, keeping the colours more or less solid as it was for a tot and then fussy cut it out.
   The background was created from a combination of My Craft Studio images and the railway line was drawn using Spectrum Noir pencils. I then cut a narrow slot in this so that I could attach the train to the card through them using several pieces of folded paper. I then attached a card pull to these pieces, having coloured the card first, so that the train runs along the track.
    Lastly I added glitter to the 'It's your birthday!'

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
