Planes, Trains and err Prams

This is my entry for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge which was on a transportation theme. I had to think very loosely on this one as I don't have any transport stamps but then they did say any mode of transport was allowed.

I've used a previous Ismaki sketch as the basis as I've seen lots of cards I really like that have used it. I do think sketches and challenges help you produce creations a bit different from your usual style. I hand wrote the sentiment, please tell me if you think it looks really amateurish. I should have used rub-ons but I keep forgetting I've got them.
