Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 505

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 505. 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 Vanessa Menhorn!

Vanessa created a colorful, festive design for a belated birthday celebration. The gorgeous blend of orange and teal complement each other beautifully, while the darker blue adds the perfect amount of contrast.

Francine also featured one of the charismatic characters from the Picture Perfect Party Animals stamp set on her design and kept the attention on her colored image by adding a subtle patterned paper behind.

Amy combined two different pattered papers as the backdrop for her endearing scene with a coordinating sentiment strip layered on top for her greeting. Diagonally angled elements, like those featured on this week's sketch, are a great way to add visual interest to a card.

Congratulations, Anita! You are the randomly selected winner from 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 September 8 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!

I love Amy’s card! So cute! It’s actually really refreshing to see something in which the elderly are pictured. I send a ton of cards to older people from my church and also to total strangers in nursing homes (at the holidays). It’s nice to have someone their age pictured for them to feel represented in cards.

Wonderful examples for the challenge. I like the first card and it’s color combination. Nice layers.
