Page Maps

Good Morning fellow crafters!! Have you ever just wanted to find a good sketch when your in a crafting slump? Well, Flourishes, Becky Fleck and Page Maps are teaming up to offer you a nice challenging sketch to kick start your creative juices, again! 

When I saw this sketch I got excited to try something I had been wanting to do; incorporate a pleated banner. It's been an idea I've been playing around with and wanted to see if it would work.

I chose to feature Flourishes "Life Lines" on a machine stitched paper from My Mind's Eye, to which I added a lace doily that I placed a Spellbinders "Damask Motifs" diecut in Kraft cardstock. I placed a Prima flower on top of the diecut, then placed some bling on it. I punched a decorative border on some cardstock and used my scoring board to score it. After that I punched some holes in it and threaded a ribbon through it then attached it to my card.

I hope you are enjoying the Flourishes and PageMaps team up and are re-inspired to create something beautiful this weekend! I can't wait to see what everyone else has created! :)
Have a great weekend and have fun creating!!
