New York City Birthday Wish

Hi everyone!  Well, vacation is over for me and it's back to work today!  Sigh...it was such a nice break for me!
 
Anyway, I made this card over the weekend for my friend Sharon.  We went to NYC together the weekend after Thanksgiving and we had so much fun!  I made a photo book of the pictures I took and I liked the way it came out so I made one for Sharon too.  Her birthday was New Year's Day so I thought it would be a nice gift for her.  And of course I had to make a card to go with it.  The City Scene stamp set from Papertrey Ink was perfect for the card!  I totally cased a card that Laura Bassen did.  While I was looking through the gallery for this set, I came across her card and just loved it.  I don't have the dies for this set, so I had to fussy cut the car and trees.  I'm still waiting for them to come back into stock.
 
This is a picture I took of the Chrysler Building when we were there and Sharon really liked it.  I was so happy to see that this building was in the stamp set!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
