Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 408

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 408. 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 used the new Christmas Background stamp to create a gold embossed backdrop for her festive pup and added a coordinating sentiment with the same embossed detail. The striped patterned paper frames her scene and coordinates nicely with the colorful Christmas lights.

Vika created a holiday card with a primarily pink color palette, and we love the non-traditional look it adds to her card. Her sweet puppy images have found a perfect resting spot in the die cut Happy Holidays Frame while the white card stock strip helps the scene stand out from the background.

Keisha used the same pink text patterned paper as Vika but paired hers with the traditional reds and greens of Christmas. Large sequins add detail and dimension to her card, and a stamped sentiment on the white card stock panel completes the design.
