Eh up ducks! This week our inspiration card is again from Pinterestwhich I'm having trouble getting to appear - sorry! Got it at last!
Here is my version, which I managed to muck up by getting my scallop-edged layer in the wrong order!
I also made a bit of a mess with my Wink Of Stella glitter brush The red of the card started spreading! And I was far too impatient to take the photo and didn't wait for it to dry. And then the sun caught me unawares and made taking photos awkward...
Your challenge today, should you choose to accept it, is to use the sketch in any way you like. This post will self-destruct....
Sketches and Templates
For those who like sketches and templates I have a few for you.

Had to do a little stash diving to find those mug stickers. The good news is that I found the pretty snowflake pp in the same place--and the ribbon. With my memory, every day is both a challenge and a joy. I am always looking for stuff I *remember* having, but never sure if I just wanted to buy it but didn't, bought it and already used it, or put it somewhere for "safe keeping". And I am always finding exciting stuff I had forgotten about completely!
grammadee love all those blues! Very wintry and warming - and I'm thinking hmm, I should have done two mugs! Do you fidn it difficult sometimes to think past the original? I do - I had mug in my head and couldn't envisage anything else as a centrepiece and yet lots of motifs would work.
And here it is! I had been digging out all the glitter white pieces to go into my blue/silver/white Christmas card kit, so finding the pieces for this one was easy. I got the idea for lifting out the diecut tree and layering it on top of the negative from Pinterest last year.
Ooh, lovely! I have some coffee cup stuff that I might use for this design down the road.
But for now, here's what I came up with. I inherited some tools, cardstock, and papers from my late MIL and she had kept some pieces from other people's handmade cards to use to make other cards, so I wanted to use some of that. The embossed snowflake with the jewel center was one of those reused bits, and it fit on some doilies I keep from a lunch event I go to (MIL would have approved - she was quite the squirrel), and it matched well with some papers from MIL's stash. Everything was a bit bigger than the original sketch scale so I left off the extra scalloped bit. I punched some snowflakes (using MIL's punches) from the blue snowflake paper which turned out to be iridescent white on the back - shiny! I even got brave enough to add a clear Nuvo drop directly to the center of the little snowflake.
joblackford, that is a beautiful card. It is so wonderful that you are already using some of those pretties your MIL "squirreled" away. Great selection of shapes, colours and patterns. Love that little iridescent snowflake with the Nuvo drop on it.

Catching up on some of the earlier challenges. I didn't use the sketch, per se, but did borrow elements from the inspiration card for my design. From the inspiration, I used a patterned paper layer, a circle die cut, a scalloped circle die cut, and a mug image.
