Card Challenge


Yesterday was the deadline for The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday challenge. Each Friday they host a card challenge on their blog. Sometimes it's a sketch challenge or sometimes a theme.

I personally find it very motivating to get started on some of my card projects. Challenges are great because they give us new ideas and techniques. This way we're always expanding our knowledge and skill. Each week TGF chooses one challenge winner, announcing them on the TGF blog each Friday. The winner usually wins a free rubber stamp! How awesome is that?!

This week's challenge was a card sketch. Here's what we were given and below it is my card.

What do you think?
There were so many awesome cards posted when I had a look yesterday. There's just so much talent out there. I never really expect to win the challenge. I just look at it as inspiration and a way to try out different layouts and techniques. It's fun sharing projects with online friends too.
Did you participate in this challenge? If not, try the sketch and leave a link in my comment box to your card. I'd love to see what you come up with!
Well, off to work! Hope you have a great day!

  2. Beautiful card!

    I do not have many supplies yet and so haven't participated in any challenges. My first set of basic Copics should arrive soon, though!

  3. Love the blue colourscheme! Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog! I feel so lucky, never expect to win. There are so many talented girls out there!
