You Hold the Key

I saw this Die Cuttin Divas sketch and immediately wanted to use it. There is something about it that really appealed to me and I don't often use sketches. I was digging through my crafty stuff today, looking for something else, when I ran across this stamp. I'd totally forgotten I had it. Immediately the crafty juices started flowing and I knew what I wanted to do with it.

After deciding on the sketch, I chose a paper pack from my stash--Glitz Paper Pack "Yours Truly."

The image is "Home Sweet Home" from My Favorite Things. After coloring it with Copic Markers I die cut and embossed it with Spellbinder Nestabilities "Labels 18." I think I followed the sketch pretty closely except for rounding the corners with my favorite Crop A Dile 1/2" Corner Chomper. I popped the image up with foam dots and added the super cute "Keys to My Heart" die set from Frantic Stamper. I've never had a need to use shims or scissors. Even the most intricate designs cut perfectly. Believe me when I tell you Frantic Stamper has some wonderful dies. Click on the link above to see the large selection of dies they have to choose from. Aren't the keys just the perfect complement to the image and the sentiment? The sentiment was cut with the My Favorite Things Dienamics "Fishtail Flags Layers Stax", also available from Frantic Stamper.

Finally I added rhinestone bling's who I am! LOL. No card is complete without it!
