The Design Team have done an amazing job with this wonderful sketch so here's the teams' inspiration for you....

Scatty Jan - What a lovely sketch this time - I used the fantastic Work and Play Festive Hollybobs collection. The flower and holly have been layered to give some depth.


Karon - I am not really one for sketches, as I am not very good.  However, I love this sketch and it was so easy to use.  I replaced the two hearts with the two main characters from the new Winston Deluxe Papercrafting CD.  All the papers and embellishments are from this wonderful CD.  The sentiment is from the Cherryblossom Lane CD.  I distressed all the edges and inked them up.


Samantha K - I have used the Work and Play 6 collection to create my card. I have used the barmaid image merged with part of the barman image, to create a more fuller bar scene :) This image is perfect whether giving to a friend who likes to celebrate or someone that works behind a bar.You can find more details and photos on MY BLOG


Cheremane - I have used the papers from Pretty Sweet Cd I adore the girls on this disk and the papers really are stunning. I decided this time to let the papers speak for themselves on my inspiration as you really can't beat having the perfect papers at your finger tips ready to print when you need them and not only that you can print as many as you want.


Melanie -  I love using sketches - it's great how you're freed up to think about colours, images and embellishments without worrying about placement - the results are always fabulous! I used the Work & Play 6 CD again for this one. The cleaning lady is such a fab image and I love that vacuum-patterned paper! I made the coiled flowers by tightly curling a strip of patterned paper using a quilling tool. Some bright felt flowers added an extra splash of colour while some lilac gems and buttons finished the effect.


Asha - Yes.... I made a Christmas card. It's hard to say no to the Festive Hollybobs CD. Lots of layering made easy with scrumptious papers from the CD. Not to mention tons of embellishments, digis and sentiments to choose from. Extras from my stash: bits of ribbon and 3 red bling ... that's all it needs!

AnnaRecently I am delighted with the new Winston collection from Winston Deluxe Papercrafting CD . However, even though this time I used papers from this collection for die cut elements, I decided to do something different - not with bears or other cute pictures but a card for a wedding. Besides, the hearts in the maps inspired me to to something wedding themed. Additional elements, which give this card a pretty touch are my favorite tulle, flowers, crystals and beads on a string.


Lou: I have used Winston (from the Winston Deluxe Papercrafting CD) to create my birthday card. All elements for my card are from the CD. I have coloured Winston with my PrismaColour pencils.


SusanI have used Amelia 15 from the Polka Doodles CD,  Pretty Sweet. I have coloured her with my Copic pens. Background papers and sentiment are also from the same cd.
