CASology 15

Gosh! I thought that summer had flown by, and now here it is, past mid-October! So many things going on, and I've had to push other things/activities ahead of my card making. : (  Today before work, however, I was determined to get a card into CASology.  The cue card is "night"...and it really got me thinking... I don't do gradients well at all, so I can't make a pretty nightscape.  Hmmmm....and I didn't want to do a Halloween card....so, what's left??? Gotham City.  Sort of.  My take on a night/batman theme.  Turned out to be very simple to make, and I think it captures the theme rather well.


I used Bazzill black cardstock, and scraps (yay!!) of gray and yellow. I die-cut the cityscape, and fussy cut the "spotlights", stamped happy birthday using PTI's Birthday Basics, and punched it out with a 1-1/4" circle punch.  That's it. Soooo clean and simple!  Happy dances everyone.
