I always try to think outside the box when I look at a sketch.  When I saw the stripes on the sketch I thought of candy cane stripes.  So from there I think, what stamps do I have that would work well with candy canes?  Of course PK-412 Too Sweet to Eat is perfect.  So I am thinking I will use some red and white strips of Christmas patterned paper for the background.  While browsing AC Moore, I saw some painted ivy bowls.  So I thought, wouldn't it be cute to paint the vase with red and white stripes and fill it with candy canes.  So that is what I did.  A fun holiday decoration and the jar was only 59 cents.  The vase is the circle with the painted stripes for the background.  The tag with the stamped ginger is the focal point..  I stamped the peppermint candies and colored them with copics.  I used a circle punch to punch the candies.  The clothes for the ginger boy were paper pieced.  I hope you will be inspired to think outside the box.  Please check out what the other designers have made here.  I look forward to seeing how you interpret the PKS sketch.  Have fun!
