May sketch challenge entries…and a WINNER!

May sketch challenge entries…and a WINNER!

Happy Wednesday friends! A couple of weeks ago we challenged you in THIS blog post to create a cart based on a PageMaps card sketch from our spring issue!  With only a couple of weeks to create from this sketch you shocked us with the number of entries to this challenge! Thank you! Today we are going to share a selection of cards we received and our winner who was randomly selected! We love some of your sweet comments too…

"Wow, this sketch was so timely and perfect– I needed a very special baby shower card, and this was exactly the inspiration that I was looking for.  And I loved it so much that I went ahead and made two more cards (thank you cards this time).  I made myself a template to paper-piece the sunburst, and I had a great time playing with paper, glue, and my sewing machine 🙂 Thanks again!" 

"I can’t tell you enough how much I love these monthly challenges! They totally inspire and motivate me to make something pretty, so thank you for that."

"Thanks for the chance to play–love the sketch, & it was fun to translate it into an interactive card! :)"

This was timely, because I've actually had to make quite a few graduation cards for my son's friends (class of 2017! 🙂 )

We love that you're loving these monthly challenges!

Just to remind you, here was the May sketch:
