Using sketches and scraps

I started working on some Christmas card and tag designs this weekend. (I'm really behind the curve on this.) Sketches are always a great inspiration for me. I almost always reach for a sketch when designing a card. I used this sketch from Jen at i{heart}tostamp for my cards.  One of my cards does not follow the sketch EXACTLY because I only have one embellishment/flower instead of two. But that's the beauty of a sketch- you are free to use your own interpretation. Here are my cards:

I used BasicGrey Wassail papers and some vintage digital images from VintageHolidayCrafts.

When I finished the cards, I used the scraps to make some tags.

The next time you need some inspiration, turn to a sketch and your scraps.
