Challenge #165 - Cityscape

Electra here.  I love the city but I live in the country.  The city where I work is just over a million people and I know to many, that's just a village, but to me, although it's vibrant and full of exciting things to do, the traffic makes me want to poke my eyes out with a stick every time I go there.
So I created a couple of pieces, one which shows the chaos I feel inside when I am trapped in a line of cars as far as the eye can see, and the other which shows how I can rise over it and enjoy the view.  If you look closely you will see it's the same city.  It all depends on my mood.  lol

We are inviting you to create something which shows us a city you love, tells us now you feel about the city, compares the city to the country...anything that even remotely has something to do with the City Theme.

Rosemary here and I was so excited about this challenge, because I have a border punch of a city skyline! So, I made inchies and ATCs using it.  The fun thing is that I used this sparkling black cardstock and when you hit it with Glossy Accents, whoosh - the skyline looks like the buildings have lights in them.  You might not be able to read it but besides Bright Lights Big City I also used the Oscar Wilde quote about All of us are in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars...

and Chat Noir here,  just posting you a taste of my home town.  You need to hop over to my blog to see the rest of the photographs.  I took a series of pictures from the city centre out to my favourite places.  I couldn't think what to do with them so the most creative thing I've done is SHARE them!!

Deena here:  I finally got a chance to put this cityscape die to some paper and love the scrap of starry night I had a chance to use for the background....after this challenge I will finally get to start creating in my brand spanking new craft room and I am sooooooooooooooo excited....I can't wait!
