City Sunset

Hi all :-) I hope you're all well and looking forward to a weekend of crafting! My lovely friend Heather arrives for a 2 week holiday this evening and I dare say we will be in my craft room for at least a few hours during that time ;-) I am looking forward to getting a few more colouring tips, her colouring is amazing! 

I am here with a card I made to enter the Less Is More 'Sunset' Challenge




I made the sunset with blended Distress Inks and just popped a Cityscape Die Cut in the foreground. The die I used is from Savvy, which is now discontinued, but this Downtown Border Die from Tailored Expressions is very similar.




Thanks for looking! I had better get a wiggle on and tidy up a bit before Heather arrives, I need to make a space for her amidst all my chaos ;-)

Challenges :
Top Tip Tuesday     Cut It Out
Tuesday Throwdown    Frame It

Hope you all have a great weekend  :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
