Card with a view




The new challenge at "A blog named Hero" is called "With a view" and I love the theme at CAS-ual Friday which is color opposites - blue-orange and the silhouette challenge at Papercrafts Connection - this is my take on it;








I used stamps from Wonderful World and International skyline.

Have a great day, hugs, Karin

i love this! Love how you blended such opposite colors, and love the song lyrics... I have them blown up in my living room and they make me happy every time I pass them by :)

Love your card, the sky is beautiful, love the sentiment and the border around your 'window.'
Thanks for the reminder of how wonderful our world is. I have been privilige (just cannot seem to spell the word right) to see many of those monuments.
