Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 304

Welcome to a new sketch from the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog. We're so glad you've decided to pay us a visit, and we hope that you'll be inspired!

Below you'll find Sketch 304. 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.

Join me in welcoming back May Park one last time as our Guest Designer this month! You can visit May's blog Mayholic Design for more inspiration. Let's see how May interpreted her last sketch with us:

Handmade card from May Park featuring Merry Everything, Hand-Lettered Christmas, and Birdie Brown Beast Friends stamp sets #mftstamps

What a riot of festive fun May created around the oval of Sketch 304! She used small stamps from the Beast Friends and Merry Everything stamp sets to surround the sentiment. I absolutely adore the pop of red for her heat embossed secondary sentiment. Fabulous!

The My Favorite Things Creative Team has been busy getting creative! Let's see what they have up their sleeves for Sketch 304!

Handmade card from Barbara Anders featuring Rainbow Greetings stamp set and End of the Rainbow and Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics #mftstamps

A strip of colorful patterned paper on the right (like the sketch) paired with a colorful rainbow contained in the oval of the sketch make Barbara's design a delight to behold. So cheery!

Handmade card from Donna Mikasa featuring Pure Innocence Season’s Tweetings stamp set and Die-namics and Oval STAX Set 2, Blueprints 23, and Blueprints 24 Die-namics #mftstamps

Oh, my! Donna's coloring on the sweet girl from our Season's Tweetings stamp set is the perfect centerpiece in the oval. Her patterned papers add to the whimsy of the design while still allowing her expertly colored focal point to be the star of the show. 

Handmade card from Jodi Collins featuring Birdie Brown Recipe for Happiness stamp set, Fall Friends stamp set and Die-namics, Wonky Stitched Oval STAX, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX, Laina Lamb Design Coffee Cup, and Blueprints 2 Die-namics #mftstamps

Clever much, Jodi? Oh my goodness, the fun things you can create with products from My Favorite Things! Pairing a pumpkin from the Fall Friends stamp set with the Coffee Cup Die-namics and a sentiment from the Recipe for Happiness stamp set gives you one delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte. Not basic AT ALL!

Handmade card from Karolyn Loncon featuring Merry Everything stamp set, Santa Suit, Wonky Stitched Oval STAX, Blueprints 18, and Blueprints 23 Die-namics,  #mftstamps

Eeek! Santa will be here before you know it, and Karolyn has her sweet grandbabies in mind with this quirky take on Sketch 304. The Santa Suit Die-namics makes BIG festive impact in traditional red. 

Handmade card from Keeway Tsao featuring Beautiful Girl stamp set and Die-namics, Single Stitch Line Oval Frames Die-namics #mftstamps

Keeway has cornered the market on cotton candy cuteness with this pastel and gingham dream of a design featuring the sweet woodland fairy from the Beautiful Girl stamp set. I love how she decorated the oval frame with delicate flowers to add just a little bit more to her card.

Handmade card from Torico featuring Birdie Brown Beast Friends stamp set and Die-namics, Stitched Snow Drifts, Stitched Oval STAX, and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

Our sweet yeti from the Beast Friends stamp set is enjoying a mug of delicious friendship on this adorbs card created by Torico. I love the cool colors she's placed on the right side of her design to accent the delightful BFF in the center of her card.

Handmade card from Kimberly Crawford featuring Thanks, Mini Royal Roses, Royal Leaves, and Stitched Mini Scallop Oval Die-namics #mftstamps

Our designers totally ROCKED this sketch! I gasped when I saw Kimberly's design. She features our Mini Royal Roses and Royal Leaves Die-namics to the left of the oval surrounded by copper sparkle. I am enamored by her rich color combination which she drew from the striped patterned paper. So pretty and elegant!
