Engine #25....All Aboard

TGIF...not sure what it is but I sure like it when Friday is here, even if I have to work tomorrow!  Hope everyone had a great week, mine was a good one productive in many areas.  I had the day off yesterday so I thought I would work on some Christmas cards.  I first saw this image awhile back colored by the very talented Jennifer Dove.  She is such an inspiration to me and this is one of the images she will be using at her upcoming card class which I cannot attend so I thought I would just give it a try on my own.

 
This image "Engine 25" is by Stampendous.  I have stamped the image twice and cut out the train scene and raised the outer layer. The edges are distressed with walnut stain.  My image is colored with copics.  The DP is "so this is Christmas" by Carta Bella.  I have a little stickles to the holly berries for a little bling.  This is one of the coolest stamps I have seen in awhile.
