I am playing along with the fun SC643 challenge today.
My idea was to create a bit of a Smokey Mountain sunset view but as often is the case it sort of changed as I created. I switched the sketch just a bit placing my circle near the top of the card instead of the lower portion!
Each layer was sponged with Clearsnap ColorBox Petal Point inks. The fun thing about these inks is that they stay on top of the paper for a slower drying time instead of being absorbed into the paper immediately so it's a snap to add clear embossing powder and heat emboss. The uppermost layer and the sponged mountain ranges were heat embossed which add fun texture and a great look!
The village die was a gift from my very sweet friend Janine (Jay_Bee). She gave me several beautiful dies when she visited last month. Wow! It's already been a month since they were here!

Oh, this is very cool. Wonderful look with the clear embossing and rich colors. Love the nighttime cloudy sky panel with the peeking moon. Wonderful curves. Love the die-cut houses. It is nighttime when we miss someone the most, isn't it?! Fabulous take on the sketch! TFS

Your vision with today's sketch is so creative! Love the results of your sunset on the Smokey Mtns! My brother lives in Knoxville and your card reminds me of him & his family. Haven't seen them in a long time, but will be visiting them in a few weeks for my nephews h.s. Graduation.
