What I Love - Challenges

Hi there! 
It's Wednesday and I remember awhile back setting this as a day to post what I love. Today I'm focusing on my love of card challenges.

I especially like sketch challenges. They help me think outside of the box in choosing stamps and themes, and sometimes I'm surprised!

Sketches limit your supplies automatically. I looked through my stash for small images that would work with the sketch and buttons. 

The sketch is very straight-forward but my approach took some liberties. 

CAS(E) This Sketch   These images are great for creating scenes, but I went with a collage-y row of little things. 

I had in mind a few specific things for the Retro Rubber Challenge - buttons and bows! Working them in with the layout was easy with the set called Beautiful Ride from SSS. I think it's over 2 years old?  Glad to pull it off my shelf and use it again.

This card makes me smile. I hope you're glad you came by to visit. Make it a great day!

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!

You're always good with sketch challenges! Very creative thinking with this one. Love how the bicycle forms the sentiment row. So darn cute! That puppy! He has such an adorable look to him. I'm glad to see you playing along at Retro Rubber and sharing one of your "what I love" posts. I keep wanting to get back to my regular stamping itinerary, but it's been hard to stick to lately. Maybe next month? We'll see.
