Catherine flipped the Build-A-Gumball Machine upside down and found a train! Then she decided to take some critters from Simply Celebrate More Critters on a cross-country train trip! So clever!

To create the amazing scenery, Catherine started by stenciling clouds on the panel. Then she layered on Simple Puffy Cloud Frames and Stitched Mountain Borders. Next, she added trees from Build-A-Campsite and a Grassy Border. I love the bright green against the mostly white backdrop.

After turning the gumball machine upside down, Catherine added details to suggest the look of a train. The headlights are a combo of Circle Stackables and the rectangle window from Build-A-House Beach Add-On. The Beach Add-On awning became the pilot/cowcatcher. And then she placed the train on tracks created with the easel from Canvas and Easel cut from woodgrain cardstock.

Then she finished the card with a Car Critters Road Trip sentiment on an Everyday Sentiment Banner.

Thank you so much for this brilliant inspiration, Catherine! It looks like a fun summer adventure!
