MIM #138

Hi there! I'm popping in this afternoon to share a card that I just made for

I was inspired by this card to use my new City Scene stamps to make my card.


Now, I know that I probably should have used a PTI die cut for the challenge, 
but I was really dying to use my new Simon Says Stamp Merry Christmas die-- isn't it fabulous?
I die cut the words from the smokey shadow card stock I used for my background 
and then filled it in with some die cut words from some gold shimmer card stock.

I added some black ink to my background with my blending tool and some post-it notes to create my building silhouettes. Then I stamped my buildings onto white card stock and cut them out with scissors and my trimmer.

Thanks for looking!

Great idea creating your building silhouettes using the black ink. I've seen the Merry Christmas die used in blogland but haven't taken the plunge yet. It's wonderful.
