I'd rather be in NYC...


Happy Monday to you.

I am off today, as I am finally teaching the class that got interrupted in April by Bill Clinton :)

I saw this week's Paper Players challenge and I fell in love with the sketch -

My Goddaughter turns 21 in November and she is heading to NYC with a chunk of our family to celebrate her birthday.
I have been planning to make her a little set of NYC focused cards to take home and the sketch inspired me to make a start.

For this card I used my brand new Newton's Nook, Newton Dreams of New York set. I have the London version of this set too..

I stamped the buildings onto my die-cut white panel. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the Newton holding an apple from the set and mounted him using foam pads slightly over the buildings.

I stamped one of the sentiments onto grey card and then punched it out using a Stampin' Up washi punch.

For the final touches I stamped the little stars from the set and added a bit of bling.

Love the simplicity of this card and I am now inspired to get on with creating the rest of the set for Amy.
