Capturing a scene in a Reverse Die-Cut

My first card for Die Cut Divas March challenge used a round die-cut with a Hero Arts background stamp, but here is the reverse die-cut framing a scene... a bit on the vintage side, but with a modern city skyline.  I truly hate to tell you how this card came about, but oh well.

I was cleaning my desk and packing random pre-cut images, such as Newspaper buildings and digi vintage autos.  A cloud even stole across the landscape of my desk.  Since the sun is popping out here with 70 degree Fahrenheit weather, I couldn't resist some sun peeking out in cardland.  The "note" panel was a left-over from something (don't ask me what because I don't know) and needed to be used.  It came together nicely.  

The reverse die-cut is raised on pop-dots with some of the buildings on glue dots connected to the reverse die (not the note card) and a few of the images dotted on the paper.  It makes for a nice depth separation.  I am looking at it on my desk and still wondering who created this... it couldn't be me.   

Have a wonderful day, now and tomorrow and tomorrow!
