Another PageMap Sketch

Only one more day until I leave on my VSN getaway! The other day I was chatting with Cindy and she suggested we do a personal challenge together. We picked a PageMaps sketch and got right to work. Well, I got distracted and never got back to it. Yesterday Cindy posted her card using this sketch, so I knew I had to finish mine up ASAP. That's me, the last minute stamper at it again!!! LOL! So here it is...

I started by stamping the Hero Arts Doodle Leaf Flower in Black Stazon on Whisper White and coloring in with a Taken With Teal Marker and a blender pen. I then cut it out and accented with Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds.

Next I cut the background pieces of Loves Me (Stampin Up) designer paper and punched two photo corner punches of each color. I used glue lines to attach some turquoise grosgrain ribbon down the seam and then doodled around each photo corner punch and the edges of the entire piece. Next I glued the punches down on alternating corners and stuck two heart shaped pins I found in the Notions bin at JoAnn's under the two diagonal photo corners. The rhinestone brads are also from JoAnns.

For the final touch, I stamped the Love Your Smile from my Autumn Leaves Golden Moments clear stamps in Black Stazon and accented with my clear Sakura Stardust gel pen. The card base is Whisper White and measures 5.25" x 5.25".
