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 452. 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.

Kathrin has shared some amazing inspiration this month. She is back today with one last August Sketch Challenge. Thanks so much for joining us, Kathrin!

The circular elements on this week's sketch are perfect for creating shaker windows full of colorful gems. Kathrin backed hers with black card stock to coordinate with her Halloween scene and highlighted each window with stamped images, die cut letters and sentiment strips.

Amy kept her design very similar to this week's sketch and used the trio of circles to ground her adorable squirrel images. The stamped woodgrain background mimics the look of a tree, giving her whimsical design a fun and playful look.

Keeway opted for rectangle elements on her design and mounted her stamped images on each one with foam adhesive for extra dimension. Colorful ink blending pairs nicely with her birthday themed card and nicely complements the coloring of her cute critters!

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

Just when I thought it was safe to put away the plastic…BOOM! A new release that is just to DIE for!!! I am just nuts about that squirrel and that giraffe brings such a smile to my face every Tim I see him. I can’t wait for release day. Congratulations to the design team for once again creating a wonderful collection. Bravo!
