Baltimore train

I have been trying to use some of my stamps (which I have a lot of) and some ink.  My best friend had her birthday last week, and I plan to give her a pack of cards since she loves that as a gift.  Her husband worked for the railroad, so I thought a train card would be a good one.  I found a stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms and put it to use.  I embossed a background and found some buttons.
