Cosmo Cricket Card

One of the things I decided to do, when I was getting back into the creative swing of things, was to push myself by working on some challenges. I actually have a stack of them sitting on my desk so that I can remember details and deadlines.

The first one is from Cosmo Cricket and Cards magazine. This sketch was created by Debbie Olson.

And this is my take on the sketch. I wasn't quite sure how accurately I needed to follow the sketch, but I am happy with the results.


I used the Odds and Ends Collection. Those little vintage children just melt my heart. They are so adorable! The buttons were picked from my button jar. I punched small tags to make my border. And I used distressed ink to accent all of my edges. The sentiment letters are also from the Odds and Ends collage pack. I tied it all together with a cute little red bow. Done!

So, what challenges have you been playing along with lately?
