Power and Spark - Grap a Map

There is a fun new challenge at Power and Poppy this month.  It is the Power and Spark challenge, buy they want you to grab a map.  Lol  WHAT?  Well, you can relax,  a Map is just a sketch.  They have give you ten maps to follow so you have a large choice.  


I chose Nancy Sheads and her map for my design.  It was so much fun, I am sure that I will be playing again. Take a look at Nancy's card and then, here is mine.
PTI card stock in canyon clay for base and smaller panel
Recollections 12 X12 paper Painted fancy
Power Poppy stamps Winter Woodland and Good Thinking Renewal for the sentiment
Stitched circle die from Tutti designs
Sizzix embossing folder
Image is colored with distress markers
Gingham ribbon and sequins from my stash

You really need to take a look at all of the Ten Maps at Power and Spark that are offered, I am sure that you will find at least one that you will love to make.

Thanks for stopping for a closer look.  I love and appreciate your comments.

  3. This card is just absolutely beautiful - I love everything about it. I have to confess, I am very envious of your eye for design. You always come up with something unusual, and everything always goes so well together. I really like your texture in the background, and of course your coloring is ALWAYS impeccable. Pinning once again!
