The Cutting Edge Challenge

*Note: I have some stamps and dies for sale, if you'd like to

Today, I have a card to share that I made for a new challenge blog called

We were challenged to create a card using one of the cards below as inspiration.


I chose the photo in the top left hand corner.
Here's my card:


To make my card, I die cut the white panel using one of the Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Duo 1 dies.
I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant's Wanderlust.
On the back panel, I inked the edges and centre using some lemon tart and sweet blush ink.
Then I stamped my buildings using Papertrey Ink's City Scene stamp set.


I adhered my top panel using some dimensional adhesive.

I'm also linking this up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:
You Gotta Have Friends, because it feels like a good encouragement card for a friend to me.

Thanks for looking!
