Cityscapes Are On The Rise Challenge

I was doing some blog hopping yesterday and I came across this awesome challenge at Moxie Fab World. Cath is the best at current trends, and this is one! She calls it Cityscapes Are On The Rise. I created this by coloring a Tim Holtz border die called Townscape, with Copic markers. My base is Moonlit Fog card stock, from Gina K. Designs. I placed my houses over an embossed swirl panel, to make it look like a city near the beach. The swirls were highlighted with Colorbox , Frost White. For embellishments I added pink gingham, a 1" circle punch for a sun, and little plastic critters. My sentiment is from an SU! set called Right At Home.

Hope you have a great Friday and super weekend!
