Miss You More Than Just a Little

Hello everyone!
I have a card to share today, and would like to enter it into 2 challenges: Addicted to CAS for the code word 'Sky’, and the Mama Elephant and Me Challenge for the inspiration photo.

Here is my card:





I wanted my scene to appear as if you were looking toward the Manhatten skyline from Hoboken, NJ. So, I masked my PTI Mat Stack die and used the negative portion to ink the sky in 3 different colors, and the lower portion in blue to depict the Hudson River.  Then, I die cut the cityscape in black and added gold stars to the sky (Mama Elephant Confetti) as a nod to the gold in the inspiration photo.

So, that’s it for me today...Thanks so much for stopping by ~
 

Barb
