I'm making a valiant effort to participate in more challenges. I enjoy them. First, they give me a great starting point for a card. Sometimes, I don't know where to begin, but challenges usually have parameters to follow, which narrows down the possibilities and gives me a place to start.
Second, challenges force me to take a really critical look at my work and try to raise the bar. There are so many talented designers and in order to compete, I have to really step up my game. I like that. I like trying to better myself.
And, if I'm lucky enough to win, they give me a little more confidence in what I'm doing. We all need a self esteem boost now and again, don't we?
So, here is a card I made for the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge. I was going to enter it into the Runway Inspired challenge, too, but I just noticed I missed the deadline. Bummer!
