Inspired by The Cutting Edge Challenge

I really was inspired by this photo and even more by the DT cards at a new challenge called  The Cutting Edge Challenge and just had to make a card with die cuts and participate. The reason I am blogging a second time today with my card is that every day this week on my blog is booked already, and the deadline to enter this challenge is 9 a.m. EDT on Thursday. Here is the card I just made for this challenge:

I pulled out a die cut from My Favorite Things and die cut the skyline in peach, grey and black, layering them so each color shows just a bit. Love the look! The Be.you.tiful sentiment is a digital stamp by the Desert Diva. I added some pearls in different sizes in peach, black and grey and layered the front piece onto a black card base. I have a special young lady in mind who loves skylines to receive this card and the sentiment is perfect for someone her age too.
