Word Dies Challenge

Hey there! I am just popping in to share a card for Word Dies Challenge over Moxie Fab World. I had this idea in my head for a while....and I am glad that I finally made it before the deadline!
thanks
I used Altenew (Sketchy Cities America) and Lawn Fawn( Scripty Thanks) to make this design.


Basically, I made a chipboard (with 5 layered dies) and stacked the dies on top of the die cut image. I colored the sentiment with Distress inks and a bit of water. I think it looks quite awesome with the skyscraper image because of the height from the word die.... :)
edited:  In order to get a clean and crisp image, I  embossed the cities in the black...it was tricky because black embossing powder is not something that you mess with! It took me two tries to get it right. 
Thanks for stopping by!
