Wishing you Blessings!

HI all and Happy Monday! I'm back to share my take on another Pagemaps Cardmaps sketch! I love getting my week started with a little bit of creativity and I love sharing that with YOU! So.... here's a peek at the sketch that I used....
As you can see, I grabbed this one from June of 2012. And, here's the fun part, Becky has all of the sketches since she first started right HERE. So, you'll have to jump on over if you ever need some inspiration!

And.... here's my card!

For my card, I started by stamping the poinsettia from the Winter Blossoms stamp set by Penny Black. I used the Memento Toffee Crunch ink on Flourishes Classic White. After that, I really just "scribble colored" some color on it using E50, E51 and then RV00 for the flower and YG91 and Y00 for the leaf. Once I was done scribbling on the color, I went over it with the blender pen. From there, I cut out the flower, added some bling to the center and.. the rest is just matting it all up! I used the Carta Bella paper called Wildflowers . I also used some light pink seam binding ribbon, some ivory crochet lace, a little gem and then the sentiment was from the Winter Berries stamp set by Flourishes

And, here's a close up!

And that, my friends, is it! Like I said if you ever need some creative inspiration in the form of a sketch, just head on over to Pagemaps and check out their Cardmaps link! 

Hope your Monday gets off to a great start! Happy creating! I'll see you back here tomorrow -- I'm playing along with this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge and then on Wednesday -- the sneaks begin for Flourishes November Release! Lots of fun headed your way!
