Card sketches are great for creating layouts too. While the sketch might not end up being the full design of the layout they can be a great base or starting point to build the layout around.
I took the idea of the layered circles on the sketch and used a larger version for my background. The way I varied from the sketch a little is I used the scallop edged circle as my largest. I actually used the backside of a die cut patterned paper for that piece. The front of it didn't have the color combo I was looking for but I loved the base color. Since the back was solid and the bar code would be covered by the other circles it ended up working.
I decided to go full force with the circles to match the background and used several sizes of circles and rings going across the page.
