Crafters of Faith: Skyline!

Hi friends!

Sending you SMILES
  across the MILES! :)

Today's card is for the Crafters of Faith card group,
a faith based group on Splitcoaststampers.
Our hostess this month is Jen
and she's given us this lovely scripture and theme:

Scripture: I've chosen part of the scripture that I read at my Gram's funeral this April.  
 It will always have special meaning to me. 
  Revelation 21:2-3 "I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem,,
 coming down out of heaven from God..."
Challenge: is to use a cityscape or some other landscape on your card.

My card was made Paper Smooches Sweet Escape.
I love this stamp set!
I stamped the cityscape on cardstock, die cut and then colored it
with prismacolor markers in cool tones.
I repeated the same with the clouds and the bird ~
and stamped the sentiment directly onto the card base.
Using Scrapbook Adhesives foam and ez runner,
I glued the base and popped up the city/bird/clouds!

The colors are based on our recent vacation ~
we saw a lot of blues and greens in the skies and ocean!

This card will be for the Paper Smooches WORDS challenge ~
and the skyline reminds me of sending her to college with the big city background!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
