Ombre City



Good morning! Popping in with a quick post before I head off to work.  I had to make a birthday card for a co-worker's sister and the current Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger was a great inspiration piece to work from (although it gave me some serious cake cravings!).  The recipient is studying architecture so I thought the buildings would be appropriate. I think a pink city is kind of cool but I don't imagine it would stay this clean for too long!  LOL! Have a lovely Friday!

ETA:  I meant to also add this card to the fun over at Seize the Birthday.  Clearly it's too early in the morning to be blogging!  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (It's Your Birthday from Say What) Mama Elephant, (Celebrate from Celebrate) Avery Elle
Inks:  (Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Die-Namics Skyline Border) My Favourite Things

What a fantastic take on the Moxie Fab trigger, Jen!! I love that layered skyline and doing it in the ombré technique is genius! And now I am hungry for cake too... ;) (And I haven't even had my breakfast yet).

Speaking as a city planner, I can tell you that your city totally rocks! I don't really understand ombre....where did that come from, not Spanish?......but this is so amazing. Great fun layers and colors.

Okay, I'm trying to get my jaw back in place...this is beyond fantastic, Jen! Not only did you layer that skyline expertly, but you added the cool ombre effect too! Are you sure it's not YOU that's studying architecture? :)
