Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 414

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 414. 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 & Inspiration blog. Join us in extending a warm hello to Marieke Slaats!

Marieke used the sketch this week as inspiration for her festive and interactive card design. She combined home decor elements from the Our Story stamp set with a cute pup from Deck the Howls to add interest and detail to her holiday scene.

Keeway kept her design similar to the sketch and used the long strip element for the stamped sentiment on her card. She gave it a fun, playful look with characters from the Jingle All the Way stamp set and created a winter wonderland as her backdrop.

Melania also used the element on the sketch for the greeting on her card and completed the look with a collection of images from the Here Comes Santa Claus stamp set. The striped paper she added to the bottom of the design adds a nice contrast to the scene and completes her holiday design.
