I completed a card for the MFT 500th sketch at the last minute, so posted on IG.  Thought you might like to see it.
I blended DIs & spritzed with water for the background.  MFT Sunny Skies die cut from yellow cardstock was covered in yellow Stickles.  The white embossed sentiment is from MFT Totally Happy.  I attached the sun & sentiment with repositionable tape, so I could move them.  Without the sketch I would have had the sun at the top of the panel.  Here's my revised card.
Always nice to have a card that can go to a guy or a gal.  I like to use enamel dots, rather than sequins or gems for masculine cards.  I also entered SSS Monday.

MFT Summer School was great this year.  All the themes were something anyone could do. 
I've already posted my cards for Day 1 & Day 2.  Here are the other 3.
Day 3, Symmetry.  Must admit, it's not my favorite card, but I was determined to use my old MFT Chevron Stripes dies & Color Challenge 146
The big chevron was cut from a scrap of pink dotted Doodlebug paper, the others from PTI Berry Sorbet & the blue panel was a scrap.  I used brown ink to stamp the stars & sentiment which are from MFT On the Line. 

Day 4, Ombre.  I made a very simple Christmas card with an old MFT unlabelled set.  I do like the traditional green, red & white color combo.  The tree image was white embossed on a scrap of Bristol paper.

Then I used a green Zig & a waterbrush to move the color so that it faded out from the tree shape.  Can't tell, but the star is covered in Stickles.  The card front was dry embossed with a dotted folder to tie in with the dots in the image.

Day 5, White Space.  Can't remember how long I've had MFT Roses in Bloom die, but it's been awhile.  When I saw the white space challenge, I thought it'd be perfect.  Must say, this is one of my favorite cards. 
Very simple, but I love the intricate modern look of the die cut.  I stacked the roses 2 high & watercolored with Tombow makers & a wet brush.  The bud & bloom were purposely attached with a little space between them & the stems.  Can't tell, but I used a shimmer pen on the bud & bloom.  The sentiment from MFT On the Line was stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black & I finished off with 3 clear sequins.  I'm also entering SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday (fav tool is mini MISTI for sentiments.)

Here are the previously posted cards for Day 1 & Day 2.  Hurrah--I graduated!
