Old-Time Train

I borrowed this retired SU set from my friend Karen. It's called Happiness is a Journey. I adore this image and can't imagine why I didn't get it when I had the chance. I stamped the image on black with Vanilla Craft ink and embossed with clear EP. Card Base is Confetti Cream. DP and metal fastener are SU. You can't tell in the pic but I pierced the upper left hand corner of the Basic Black layer.
I'm going to make several more cards with this set before I give it back to Karen. I've seen lots of great examples using this set and the soot stamping technique, which I've never tried. Thanks for dropping by--have a wonderful Monday!
