For the Inspiration Challenge (IC658), Angie chose a super site & we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong 😕
To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the "Deep in the Heart of Texas" part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You're welcome!!
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups & the inside are on my blog: The Write Stuff

Oh!!!! I LOVE this so much. I had actually saved the Atlanta skyline souvenier that is the same as the one you chose for TX but I don't have a skyline die. I tried a village die but it didn't look right so I went with a Panda but I sure enjoy seeing what you did with this particular inspiration! Stunning!

Deep in the heart of Texas! Ha! My mom used to sing that. She was born and raised in Denison, Texas.
I LOVE your colorful card! It is an eye catcher and really beautiful! Makes my heart happy to look at it!

This is a GORGEOUS representation of your inspiration piece...love the rainbow-colored city skyline. Your card, by far, surpasses the inspiration! I love your rainbow-colored transition to the stars in the sky and the stars in your die-cut sentiment! Right to my FAVs, Julie!
