Steaming in with some birthday wishes

I'm so busy with trying to renovate our house at the moment. This does mean sadly that crafting is on the back burner. Birthday's though still happen, & I find myself desperately putting together last minute cards.
I find sketches really help speed up this process, as your design is already there. One of my favourite sites for sketches is Sketch n Stash and this challenge is their 100th one, to celebrate their 100th challenge you can choose any sketch from their catalogue to use.

I needed to knock up a card for our cousin who's celebrating his 40th birthday. He's a fan of trains & to celebrate his special birthday we're having a meal on a steam train. I knew amongst my really, really old stash of decoupage I had an image of a steam train that I thought would be perfect.
Decoupage tracked down, I had a peruse through the sketches. I decided to use sketch 85

I would like to enter the following challenges with this card

Sketch and stash challenge 100 - Choose a sketch
Paper crafting journey - Anything Goes
Divas by Design Challenge 61- Anything Goes
Pennys Challenge - 102 - Anything Goes
