Page Maps March Sketch

Take a peek over at the PageMaps site today - I got to make a sample for one of the March card sketches! If you're not familiar with PageMaps, dig around over there - PageMaps is a great sketch resource for cardmakers and scrapbookers, with a little something for everyone's style. Layouts are not my strong point, and a fresh sketch is always a great inspiration!

Here's the sketch Becky sent me to work with:

And here's my card:

Becky Fleck and PageMaps have recently joined the Penny Black family! These are some of her super-cute new designs. Love this April Showers set! I colored the images with Touch Twin Markers, and made a fun little background with one of the umbrellas. The colors I used are below.

 I had some scraps leftover from my umbrella background, and combined them with some other scraps that were out on my desk... actually the desk scraps inspired the color combo for my card, so it's no coincidence that they match so well! Now I'm feeling good about having a messy desk... LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What an absolutely wonderful spring card! The combination of the boots and umbrellas in the background are delightful! Lovely colors too! I hope you won't mind if I "borrow" your idea.

  2. Love the colors! Those boots would make me say "bring the rain, I'm going to be stylin' in my rain
    boots!" Sweet background and the scoring is a great touch, too! Beautifully done!

  3. so very cute, great spring cards!

  4. Great way to use the umbrella.
