I'm a friend of Card Maps!

With June 1st comes a whole new crop of sketches to get those creative juices flowing over at Page Maps! And, I was lucky enough to be a 'Friends of Page Maps' guest designer for this round of sketches!

So, want to see the sketch???

And, here's my take on it...


When I saw the sketch, I just knew I wanted a sunny and summery card. I also loved the cute little buttons in Becky's sketch, so I also knew I didn't want to wing it on that detail. So, here you have it ~ a little polka dot paper, some stitching, some fun gingham ribbon, a punched edge and a cute little stamp and sentiment. I used the Strawberries set from Flourishes and colored it up with Copic Markers in R24, R27, R29, YG00, YG03, Y15, Y17 and a little shading with B000.

Want some extra sketch inspiration? Be sure to check out the latest CardMaps sketches HERE. Becky always puts together some fantastic and fun card layouts that truly inspire!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you back here soon!
