I made this card for my first challenge that I am entering.  The challenge is on the Cricut MB link here:

The challenge is to use one (or all) of the sketches as inspiration for you card, layout, whatever you'd like. 

Since this is my first challenge, I must admit I am a bit nervous!  I hope this is something the other crafty individuals who participate in these things will like/enjoy.  I used a combination of the two sketches below:

I used the folded corners plus the mat on the first sketch and the charm on the second sketch.
This is my result:

The charm is a coffee mug cut from Gypsy Wanderings, and I used a small gage wire to attach it to.  I fastened buttons onto the end of the wire, and then sewed the utton onto the paper with some off-white thread.  The folded corners are pop-dotted to add a bit more dimension, as well as the coffee mug. 
The sentiment is hand-written.  There's a lot of inking!  The inside just has some off-white paper, inked and one of the flowers from the patterned paper on the front is cut out and adhered to the corner.

I like how this turned out, I don't know if this is completely following the challenge 100% since I didn't stick to any of the original designs 100%, but the designs did inspire ths creation!

Thank you for looking, and I hope you enjoy!
