Molli Visits Houston

     This was a super enjoyable card to make. The sketch made it easy. My friend Gigi lent her "City Mollie" stamp to play with. The word "city" just jumped right out at me. I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut the Houston skyline. BTW: there are tons of skylines in their Design Store. Not too long ago I looked up all of the cities that have major league baseball teams and only two of them were not there (Baltimore and San Diego, I think). 
     I really enjoy dressing these girls. I am using the Maja Designs Celebrations collection. It is a challenge to figure out the order to place the clothing, so the perspective is just right. It is a simple card, but Mollie has enough details to give it interest. 
     I will also mention that the scripty writing across the top is part of the paper. I liked it and made sure that it was visible. I have gotten several comments like "What does it say?". I'm pretty sure that it is Swedish - really - because this paper is made in Sweden.
