Inspiration and sketches

I wanted to play along with one of the challenges at the  Moxie Fab Get Inspired week.  This is the inspiration piece that I played along with.  I think that is it adorable, so feminine and gotta love that great checked, green and cream pattern.
This is the card that I created. I love this doily die from My Favorite Things, a look that is so very feminine and to that I added a circle cut from a piece of October Afternoon patterned paper. 
I love this particular piece of patterned paper because whatever circle you cut out, the patterns and colors are all different so you get a completely different look with each one.  The flower is a resin flower by Maya Road.  I added a pearl to the middle of that to give the look of the jewelry on the little jacket.

I also used the Unscripted sketches sketch for this week. I turned it like I am showing you here.
The piggyback challenge was to not use any flowers so of course, a card for a little boy just seemed like the right fit. 
I also picked some October Afternoon supplies for my card.  It was fun to use all chipboard sticker pieces for my accents, sooooo fast and easy.
And for a few photos...
More from our SNOW or Big Bear trip.  How can a snow trip be complete without a snowball fit! It was so much fun to try to capture the snow "in the air"!
It didn't actually snow while we were there and our granddaughter so wanted to see snow falling so this photo of the fit captured the feel of that pretty well!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

The green gingham inspired card is wonderful with the doily backset and layered with the circle pattern paper and flower! Love this! Your birthday card is cute with the little boy on his bike. Like how you shared the layout as you used. Looks like a fun trip!
