Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 496

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 496. 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 challenge blog this month. Join us in extending a warm hello to Ashley Tucker!

This week's sketch reminded Ashley of an envelope so she went with that idea and created an amazing tri-fold design. Her scene extends across the front of her card seamlessly and when it's opened, a colorful, cloud-filled sky is revealed!

Anna added her elements on the right side of her card and went for a soft curve on her design in lieu of the straight edges. Layered patterned circles add depth and dimension to her underwater scene with a fun pop of yellow on her sentiment strip completing the card.

Joy kept her design very similar to the sketch this week and used the main element to create a cloudy backdrop for her adorable squirrel image. A simple black sentiment strip adds great contrast that coordinates nicely with her design.

Congratulations, Claire! 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 July 7 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!
