Polar Express- I Believe

I spent the weekend's creative time creating this card to mimic the Polar Express. I started it on Friday and finished just a few minutes ago working on it here and there. I just added a final touch after this photo was taken. I took my white gel pin and added snow dots in the Juniper CS. It add another dimension and a finishing feel.
I used CTMH's Childhood stamp set to create the train, the tracks were created using the fence from Spellbound and I used a masking technique. The paper is from Jingle Level 2. The snow on the train and the puffs of smoke are liquid applique. The only non CTMH product is the stickles. I don't know if you can see it on the snow at the bottom of the card I used the Pearl Create a Shade paint to give it a fun shimmer and textured look. My Quickutz mini Venus dies were used to cut out the believe in the Tulip paper, then they were coated in the ultra wonderful, how did we live without it Stickles. I hope you like this card. It was fun to create and a complete original design. PS I forgot to mention the snow was created by stamping with the cloud outline stamp from the Childhood set, then cutting out, and using the reverse side.
