Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 407

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 407. 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 Erica back to the Challenge blog today with her take on this week's sketch.

Erica created a gorgeous design with non-traditional Christmas colors for this week's sketch, and we love the final result! She created an emboss resist background with an ombre effect before assembling her gold and blue poinsettia over the top. The gold details, both in the focal image and the embossed sentiment, add stunning detail to her holiday design.

Vika used the sketch layout as inspiration for her Christmas Eve design. She replaced the large star element with Santa peeking out from the behind the tree and added her stamped sentiment directly underneath. The colorful background adds a playful look to her holiday scene.

Barbara created an elegant holiday card with a large white and gold poinsettia as the focal image. The various gold accents add a beautiful sophistication while the white details keep it soft and serene.
