My project today features Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company's new set called Big City and a last minute Christmas gift.  Since we all need something to write on when taking a message while talking on the phone, I took a blank message cube, and stamped the skyscrapers in memento tuxedo black all the way around it before tying a ribbon in a knot to hold it together.

Now for the card, I made my own background by stamping the text repeatedly in memento black onto white card stock before layering onto a black card.  Then I took the same skyscrapers and stamped those in memento black, colored with a deco yellow prismacolor marker before stippling grey clouds over my skyline.  Once that was done, I stamped the birds from Scenic Selections and the "welcome" saying from Big City before layering and adding silver brads.  The only other embellishment I added was some black/white sheer organdy ribbon tied into a knot at the top. 

Here's a close up of the set together.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
