Page Maps - 2 Sketches 4 You and Pink Paislee

That is quite a combo, but it works!
First of all, I love Page Maps and their great "plans" for page layouts. I used a 12" x 12" Page Map from November. If you haven't checked out what they offer, you have to because each month there are new "maps" for layouts and cards and also in a variety of sizes. I also had just received some Pink Paislee Christmas papers and so they just seemed like the perfect fit for these photos and this layout.
How cute is that little owl? Yes, he is NOT part of a Christmas set of stamps but can you say he worked here!!! Especially with his little hat that I added that matches the hat that my youngest grandson is wearing in our little photo shoot. He was stamped on the patterned paper and embossed with black embossing powder because that makes the image more intense and then I cut him out. The hat was created by just cutting up some scraps and adding a glitter brad.
The sticker letters are also Pink Paislee and I punched two sizes of circles to create my little accents down the side. I added red, glitter brads to the middles of those circles just to bring in a bit of BLING!
Since my stamps and papers were already out and I also had some scraps of other patterns of Pink Paislee papers from some other projects, they just seemed to go together for this card that was created from a 2 Sketches 4 you sketch, Kazan's Sketch #14.
The little owl was stamped on the grid paper and embossed. He was partly colored with some Copic markers and brushed with some Powder Puff Chalk stamp pads. The circle/flower design is also a stamp and that was stamped and embossed with green.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
