Miss You

Hi bloggers!  The City Skyline is the subject for today's card.  I used black gloss card to cut the skyline pieces.  I decided to make rows rather than layering them on top of each other just to show another look for it.  I added them on to the circle cut in white with a sparkly moon.  Next I cut continuous strips of them and layered them in the same manner across a piece of white card that was covered with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I placed them all down then coated the exposed adhesive with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz and added the circle to the top.  I used the Miss You mini expression in the upper corner.  White and black gloss mats and layers were used to complete the card. The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.

Don't forget to check back later thus afternoon as I will be doing the drawings and posting the winners for the blog launch die release!!  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. Another day another lovely sample of your skyline die. The same thought that goes through my mind every morning is "you are so clever" so do I really need to say more ? Have a great day whatever your planning to do with it, something crafty, something beautiful I dare say. Keeping fingers crossed that I see a lot of our everyday regular names on the list of winners later. Good luck guys xxx

I do not know why but most of the pictures will not come up and the rest are only partial pictures. However I think this is one that you made on Hochanda, or was in the samples, as I am sure i have seen it before. A nice card from the bits I can see and what I remember lol.

Hi Sue. This is a fabulous card using your fabulous City Skyline dies !!! I love the modern, sophisticated design you have made using black gloss card and white glitter which I think really makes a bold statement !!!

It is stunning !!! Thank you Sue. Lots of love from Tres X X X
