Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Please pop by to see what our fabulous guest, Tenia, and the DT have made!! They should be architects!! 

I live on a tiny island, very rural and farming community, no cities here ;-) I wouldn't like to live in a city center but I do miss the buzz and atmosphere of city life, the theatres, galleries, shops, so I often go on mini breaks to cities around Europe. I can't say what my city looks like, maybe Paris with the tall buildings and lofts, if you use your imagination and squint a bit, maybe you can see it ;-) 

I created a citycape Christmas card using a Tim Holtz Sizzix Snowglobe Die Set. 


 For the background I used Alcohol Inks, a Falling Stars Stencil and Alcohol Blending Solution  and added a Santa with Reindeer to fly over the rooftops 


I used Silver Glitter Card to 'shadow' the silhouette and add some lovely 'moonshine sparkle' 


and I finished the inside 


and made a simple matching envelope




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!
