Wish You Were Here

Hello there blog friends ~
I hope everyone who celebrated Christmas had a great time with family and friends!

A really quick post today just to share a card I created for the current challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch:





This card is 5"x7". I die cut the Cityscape four times in black and three shades of gray to add some depth and dimension to this card, and I used pigment inks for the sky.

So, that's it for me...Thanks for stopping by ~ Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

This is so amazing. What a fabulous way to use that city scape die. I've pinned this one--and I also love the amazing background you created too.

Wonderful take on the sketch, Barb! You know, I was ALMOST going to use some cityscape dies (because I have so many!) so I guess great minds think alike, huh? Love how your sky turned out, too! Happy Holidays to you!
