Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 427

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 427. 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 this month. Join us in extending a warm hello to Cassie Tezak!

Cassie used the sketch as inspiration for her adorable Birthday Chicks balloon. We love all of the fun stamped elements she included in her design, including the little present she added at the base of the balloon. The stamped sentiment on vellum provides a subtle greeting that coordinates nicely with the colors she chose.

Francine created a stunning balloon design on her card as well with a beautiful blend of inks to create cloud-filled sky behind her stamped sentiment. A few added sequins add texture and dimension to her design while the white space keeps her focal image in the spotlight.

Nicole decided to go with a hot air balloon on her card, and it totally works with the sketch layout. The inked cloud panel is the perfect backdrop for her stamped image and the added foam adhesive behind her colorful balloon adds fun dimension and makes it look as though it's floating through the sky.
