Office Buildings at Night

I made this  card for my son who works in downtown Chicago in a tall office building. These buildings (cut with a My Favorite Things die) remind me of a large city skyline. I simply masked the moon and sponged with a sunset variety of colors. Then I added the buildings and the "happy hello."

I am entering this card in the "office or work related" challenge at Open Minded Challenges and the Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create.

Happy Labor Day everyone! I am celebrating my happy retirement so today is like every other one:)
