Vintage Page Map

Hello and welcome! Today I am excited about my card although I will tell you that I am terribly disappointed in the photos.  For whatever reason and honestly it is baffling to me, my pictures are clear and nice and then when I load them- just not as crisp. This card is so pretty in real life.  

But you know what, you didn't come to hear me whine did you?  This card is using a page map by Becky Fleck over on CropStop.  The pagemap is awesome and I followed it with with a couple variations.  Obviously it is not a scrapbook page but rather a birthday card.  I start with the flags along the far left and mine are varying heights and all 3 actually curl.  Then there is the picture and this is a raised frame over some designer paper and then I added the butterfly, the swirl by Cheery Lynn, along with some beads. Next is the section that shows on the map as lines and what I did is embossed this beautiful black swirled designer paper and along the bottom I did some paper piercing, the little flags and then another strip with piercing.  The final section to the far right is my sentiment along with the butterfly and some beading.  I just hope you can see some of the fine details.  

I hope you enjoyed the pagemap!
