Seattle - Never out of my mind

Hey everyone!
Wanted to stop in real quick before I melt away from the heat to share a card that I made a few days ago.  It wasn't for any other purpose than for me to stare and daydream at during the day.
I have been missing my home in Seattle so much lately.  It's always on my mind and makes me long to be back there again.  I know that if that is meant to happen, it will and I just need to be patient.  But missing home makes patience hard.  So I brought a little bit of home to me.

The silhouette was cut out with my machine and I did a bunch of ink blending on the background for the sky.  Seattle had an absolutely amazing sunset a little while ago and I really wanted to replicate it on this card...but I certainly didn't do justice to the real deal.  You can see photos of it on the Komo News site.

I used a sentiment from Create with TLC that seemed to fit my mood just perfectly!  A few little stars in the sky and a layered button and heart finish off the card.

This will sit on my desk for quite awhile.  When I need a little break, I'll stare at it and dream of that beautiful city!
