H2H Sketch Challenge ~ City Scape

Heart 2 Heart Blog this week is challenging us to a Sketch in the gorgeous Wishes book. It's called City Scape and is actually a very small 4 3/4 x 3" card. It's a simple sketch and really leaves a lot to the imagination. Here is the sketch~

I took the sketch and flipped it 180` for my card, like this~

I also made my card so that it had a "flap" opening rather than just a standard side opening. Here it is~

Look closely and you'll see the the "flap" tucks inside the card stock piece on top.

Here's a time saving idea: To create the piece of card stock on the front with all the sentiments, I laid all the words and phrases I wanted to use on a larger block then stamped it all at once. You can do this with different shapes, flowers, numbers etc. to create a background stamp too!
