The World at Her Feet

I made this card for the daughter of a friend of mine who is turning 21 soon.  This funky chick is from a Framelit set I ordered a few weeks ago from Sizzix.   When Ruth told me her daughter is into 60s fashion it seemed the obvious choice.  This set is a doddle to use.  I had my doubts about the Sizzix framelit dies at first as I am a big fan of Spellbinders, but I have to say I'm impressed.  The cutting edge is on the inside edge so there's no more guess work when it comes to cutting your stamped image - what you see is what you cut.

The city icons of the world stamp is from Katzelkraft, and the affirmation stamps are from a Sizzix set (Wish You Were Here) and a Kaiser Scrapbook set (Live Out Loud)

The key was cut from felt and card using a Tim Holtz movers and shapers die.   I had toyed with the idea of hanging the key from her wrist but in the end decided on an easel card and used the key as the prop.

This gorgeous sentiment on the inside is from the WMS Big Day Today set.  Can't wait until I can use this set again - all of the sentiments are sooo beautiful.
Thanks for stopping by !!!
