Moxie Fab Map to Your Heart Challenge & CASE Study #74


I don't know about you, but I work better closer to the deadline.  Drives my family crazy, but, like they say, it is what it is.  So today's card is for the Moxie Fab Map to Your Heart Challenge which ends tomorrow.  If you're motivated by deadlines like me, you've still got plenty of time to play along;)
For this challenge, I was so glad that I could use some vintage atlas maps that I saved from a book destined for the trash bin!  {Admit it, you save things from the trash and recycle bins too, right?}  I cut the map into squares and rounded opposite corners to shape the petals (the pink layer is slightly bigger than the map layers BTW).  
I used my new WPlus9 stamp for the stem.  It's supposed to be a clothesline, but I love that it could be used for so many things.  I'm also putting this in for the CASE Study #74 challenge with the fantastic inspiration piece from Jen Rzasa.  Go check it out!  

Thanks for visiting and go Ravens!

  1. This is gorgeous, JJ! Love the pink with that green and I so want that WPlus9 stamp. The layered leaves are a sweet touch too.
    I usually work close to the deadline too but I've missed one too many lately so am trying to get ahead!

  6. This is so clever. I love how you have used different things to create your flower. I've never seen a map used for a flower, and I don't know why--it works great.

  7. Deadlines...without them I'd never get anything done! I'm a last-minute Lucy all the way :)
    Love the pop of blue in the button, and the rounded bottom corner, and all the teensy details that you add...I love everything you make :)
