It's Sketch time at Jingle Belles, so we've got a beautiful, flexible layout devised by our very own Stephanie Severin to help you design this week's holiday card.
The circle element can of course be any shape, and you're welcome to rotate, flip, or stretch the design; just make sure we can see the "bones" of the sketch in your card. Here's how we were inspired by the Sketch:

We're still celebrating all the fun uses for text on holiday cards: texty patterned paper or book-page backgrounds, oversized sentiments, creative use of letter stickers, or... well, however you would like to interpret this fun prompt!
If you need more ideas, scroll down to the original Text Me Christmas post to check out the fab cards already in the Readers' Gallery. Meanwhile, here's what we made this week:

This week's Jingle Belles theme is TEXT ME – create a holiday card that prominently celebrates text.
That might mean using some letter stickers, dictionary pages, texty patterned paper, or just creating a card where the sentiment is the star. Great creative with your words and make sure you get TEXTY.
Here is how we got TEXT-y this week:

One of our favorite things about a photo inspiration challenge is how many very different ideas can be suggested by the same picture. Some folks choose the colors and overall vibe; some focus on one or two specific elements within the scene. But in this case, absolutely everybody rocked it!!! Here are a few takes that especially caught our eye this time:
...made two completely different cards that we love equally, so you really need to hop over and see the other one, too. In this one, she captures the amber color as well as the more prominent pinks and greens, the stripes and dots that recur within the photo, and of course that fun reindeer icon.
...did a fantastic job of interpreting the color scheme, the positioning of the elements and of course she beautifully recreated that amazing sparkly tree in miniature form!
...focused on the mantel area, with amazing attention to detail; she's got clustered bottle brush trees against a woodgrain/shiplap background, colorful wordart and even a sweet reindeer in a circular frame!
Many thanks to everyone who joined the fun, we truly love seeing ALL of your cards! We'll be back at midnight with a word or two about the next prompt!
