Papercraft Star Challenge #165

Today I am participating in the Papercraft Star Challenge #165.
Here is the inspiration:

The first thing to catch my eye in the photo were the vertical columns and the light green color of the building.  I wanted to play off those things and the orange color.
Here is my card:
 I learned something with this card.  Embossing even heavy cardstock really weakens it.  The green is a piece of PTI cardstock which is pretty heavy.  I adhered it with demensionals and then I noticed that the cardstock was really week and the edges were kind of caving in?  I had to go around and add dimensionals on almost all of the edges.  In real lfe it doesn't look lumpy like it does in the photo.  I think next time I want to do this I will have to adhere it to another piece of cardstock before poppoing it up to give it strength.

I added a strip of sparkle tape between the two green pieces:

If this card looks a bit familiar to you it is probably because I cased it almost exactly from an Ellen Hutson, Hello Monday video that Julie Ebersole (love Julie's personality) made a couple of weeks ago.  I was so taken with her card that I actually bought the stamp, something I hardly ever do.  I usually can find a stamp in my stash that works but I had been eyeing a similar stamp for a while and decided to go for it.  It is an Impression Obsession stamp.

See you soon,
