Start Each Day With A Grateful Heart

Hey there! I bought MFTs New York Skyline a while back and totally forgot about it. I thought I would create a card and enter it in a couple of current challenges out there in blogland.

First I sponged my background with distress inks and added water dropplets.
Then I cut out a couple of die cuts of the skyline in white cardstock. Several buildings on one end of a die cut and several buildings on the opposite end of the second die cut were removed. I then cut the second die cut shorter and adhered it in front of the first one to make it look more like a city.
A sentiment from Lovely Layers by PTI was stamped in the bottom corner above a thin black strip of black cardstock.
Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely day!
