I really liked Karen's page map this month. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I was going to do~ love when that happens! For this layout I really distressed the background paper with ink and dropped some ink splotches on it. The flourish I used a large flourish stamp from my stash. I used Versamark Ink and then dusted dome Perfect Pearls over it. Gave me exactly the feel I was looking for.
