Are you ready for another MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I chose to work with Inspired By Up, Up and Away this week. I really love that set. I cut out my balloons with my Die-namics Up, Up and Away dies, stamped them with Memento Potter’s Clay ink, and popped them up on foam. The rest is pretty self-explanatory, I think. Some stitching, some Pumice Stone Distress Ink sponging, the sentiment stamped at the bottom, a border using my Die-namics Little Open Scallop Strip die cut, and finished off with a Hemp Cord-tied Tangy Orange button.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:
