Merry & Bright–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #358


Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


Am I the only one who keeps certain cards you make? Once in a while there’s a card that I’m so happy with that I want to keep it. There aren’t many but a couple of years ago I made a card similar to this one and I’ve always regretted letting it go so I’m using it as inspiration for this week’s sketch card. I sponged the background (ink colors listed below) and used the circle of light for the circle of the sketch.


I added Snow Drifts Die-namics for the bottom element with the sentiment from Hand Lettered holidays and popped up a Streetlights Die-namics to pull the design together. The holly sprig is from BB Santa’s Elves, stamped, colored, and fussy cut out before adding it to the streetlight. To finish off, I splattered the sky and the streetlight with watered down white craft paint before adding it to the scene.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the

  1. Wow !! The light in this card is stunning !!

  2. Now this is a keeper!! Unless you send it to me.☺️

  3. There IS something about this card that is really awesome. I really like it. In fact I went though my dies and found I have that light die. I've never used it and always wondered what I could do with it. Well, you showed me!! Now can I "try" to make mine half as good as yours??

  4. I want to say this is stunning, that was said already, but seriously- this is STUNNING!
