FS218: bspinks

I based my card on Becky's card {IC231}.
I love the black and red together, but I wanted to create a more masculine theme, since this month's theme at Papertrey is boys! I found some black and white designer paper which I thought went well with the train set. I used the No. 5 on the engine (you can custom create the train engine number). I thought it would be fun to use the "I think you can" sentiment {Little Engine that could} three times! Would this be a cute card to slip into your child's backpack when they have a big test!

I used some copics to color in the image. I added some black buttons with some red and white bakers twine.

added buttons
moved sentiment to a strip across front of card
no ribbon
made it more masculine
added designer paper
