Cardmaps Sketch - Pagemaps

Hello all and happy Saturday! Today I have a special treat! Some of the Flourishes gals have joined the Pagemaps team to usher in a little source of creative inspiration with Becky Fleck's latest round of Cardmaps sketches! Each designer took a different sketch and created to her heart's content!

Here's a peek at my sketch...

And here's a peek at my creation!

This sketch is a lot of fun to play with and it just called for the Flourishes set of Glamour Girls.  I used MME Lost and Found collection for my pattern papers while the image was stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock with Black Memento ink and colored in with Copics. I cut around the image to pop up over the patterned paper.  I used the pearl strand stamp from the set to stamp at the top of the card with this fabulous Prima vintage trinket charm to attach it as if it were hanging from the pearls. The sentiment was stamped on more of the Flourishes ivory cardstock, cut out to fit, and placed under the clear glass bubble.  This sentiment makes me chuckle, because all I keep picturing is Will Ferrell saying this statement. Don't you?  :)  For the finishing touches, I added some ivory seam binding ribbon to the top of the trinket, some fun May Arts ruffle tulle ribbon under the center banner, and some rhinestones for a little sparkle.

Now if you hop on over to see these ladies below, you'll get fresh inspiration with different sketches and fabulous designs! And, if you want more than that -- you'll find it just a click away HERE -- with even more sketch ideas and samples! So, hop along and have some fun!
