I didn't take step-by step photos because this is really a very simple card, with all the prep being in the inking of the card stock to be die-cut! I took scraps of tan and very dark brown card and smooshed it into three colors of Distress Oxides, misted it and then let it dry before cutting the Metropolis pieces out. It was then a matter of assembling each building and arranging them on a background of patterned velum and white card painted with Wink of Stella. I die cut a "sentiment" banner from a scrap of glittery/shimmery white card (previously run through my Xyron sticker maker). Then a spritz of two of "Picket Fence" marker and some random doodles with a white gel pen (for snow flakes) and a gold marker (for windows) and my card was finished!
