Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 221

Let's see how inspiring this week's sketch is! We think you'll love it.

Below you'll find Sketch 221. 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 worth up to $20.
We have been so fortunate to have Kelly Griglione as our guest designer this month! Her ideas have been so inspiring, don't you agree?

Kelly's blog Notable Nest is definitely a must-visit. Add her to your reader so you can keep up with her clever creations.

And that brings us to her final project as a guest. And as expected, you won't be disappointed!

When it comes to making cards, the element of surprise always makes it more fun for the recipient. It's obvious that Kelly had a blast coming up with this interactive card. By creating a window, she was able to showcase the back AND front of that doggie in the window. And her inside sentiment emulates the wagging action of the tail. Too clever for words.

How did our Challenge Team interpret the sketch this week? Let's check it out!

When Alice looked at the sketch, she decided to make the three dots a playful jumble, and she incorporated the curved portion of the grey panel of the sketch

The pink corner-rounded square conjured the Television Die-namic as a fun focal point on Erin Lee's card. The playful colors add to the vibrancy of this delightful design!

Inspired by the three dots of the original sketch, Jill envisioned a festive birthday cake with three glowing flames. I also love how she inlaid the flag die to highlight her sentiment. I'm going to have to use that idea soon!

Three dots become three paw prints in Miriam's cutie patootie design, and they perfectly balance with the rest of the elements of the card. If you look carefully, you'll see that the eye is drwn from the paw prints to the image to the sentiment creating flow.

Vera saw the perfect opportunity to have a kitty peeking out of a window in her design. And sequins are a fun addition as the dots of the sketch.

What a cute and colorful concoction Veronica created with lots of Die-namics and a fresh color palette! The stitching detail connecting the top and main panels is such a perfect touch. I hope that the sweet bunny doesn't get lost in all of that tall grass!
