Addicted to CAS - Guest Designer for January!

I'm so excited to reveal today that I have been invited to be the Guest Designer for January over at the Addicted to CAS challenge!
Today's challenge is hosted by Jaydee - and her code word is WORLD
I had lots of ideas swirling around my head for this code word - maybe use a piece of a map (I saved a whole bag of maps from my Dad's old National Geographics to use SOMEDAY on cards!) or maybe do something with a globe die I have??  Then I remembered a stamp set I bought forever ago called City Scene from PTI and inspiration hit! (I also bought the coordinating dies for the set, of course!)
We've got Big Ben in London, The Chrysler Building in New York City and the Eiffel Tower in Paris - so this represents many parts of the WORLD -  there's also the cute little NYC taxi cab to drive you around the WORLD and the fun passport sentiment (a little wood mounted stamp from Uptown Design that I've had for ages, I think they are out of business).

Big Ben and the Chrysler building each have two stamps in the set (outline and background) so it's easy peasy to stamp them in two colors and having the dies means you get them cut out with one little roll of the die cutting machine!  I layered all the buildings on one side to leave lots of white space on my CAS creation.

So - how do you see the "WORLD"???  I hope you'll link up your creations over at Addicted to CAS!  and I'll see you again as Guest DT for the January 31st challenge!

Stamps:  City Scene - PTI,  sentiment from Uptown Design Co.
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black, Peanut Butter and Olive Grove.
Accessories:  City Scene Die Collection - PTI, foam tape.
