Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 449

Welcome to another Weekly Sketch Challenge!

Turn each inspiring sketch into a mini work of art to add to your stash — you could also add $50 worth of brand new MFT to your collection! Now that is a win-win.

Below you’ll find Sketch 449. Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this week’s sketch and be sure to link your project below for a chance at the weekly My Favorite Things Gift Voucher.

MFT products are encouraged but not required. We just want to see what this week’s sketch inspires you to create! You can enter your cards for this week’s challenge in the Inlinkz Link Up at the bottom of this post.

We're welcoming a brand new guest designer to the Sketch Challenge this month. Join us in extending a warm hello to Kathrin Donhauser-Ruth!

Kathrin created a spooktacular scene featuring bright pops of orange and purple, perfectly capturing the essence of Halloween. She used the sketch as inspiration for the layout of her stamped elements and the coordinating backdrop, which nicely complements her design.

Nicole flipped the sketch on its side and used the elements to construct her charming summer scene. A simple sentiment stamped on back card stock adds a nice contrast to her colorful design and keeps the focus on her endearing orangutan.

Barbara kept her design very similar to the sketch and used the large element for the cloud-filled sky. Adding the main panel with foam adhesive adds dimension to her card that really highlights her tweet birds.

Congratulations, Kristi_! You are the randomly selected winner of last week’s sketch challenge.

You can view all the entries for last week’s challenge HERE.

Now, it’s your turn. You have until August 13, at noon EDT to add your link and be eligible for the prize of $50 in MFT Cash to be spent in the MFT boutique. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance!
