NYC that never sleeps with some patriotic dies

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last August post  in Die- Versions blog.

There are a few places around the world that you can love or hate.  New York is such a place for most of us. Some are just fascinated by this huge never ending city; some, like my husband, visited it a couple of times and would never come back. For me New York is the whole world! I love this city and I am in love with it. I can come back twice a year and still find new places to visit, new food to try or new shops with unbelievable sales. I love the streets, the smell and the lights of this unique city. So making New York deco was a great fun and I think that with Paper 
House themed products and new patriotic Die Versions dies  it was just a piece of cake.
 I hope that you love my cake 
 And I even made a small tutorial for you, just in case you want to make your own NYC book.
