Saturday Sketch Time!

On the last Saturday of the month Lauren and her sketch team choose a sketch from the past and play with it again. Can you believe that it's already the last Saturday in March? I'm still trying to figure out where January went!

Here's the sketch that I decided to re-visit...Here's what I came up with...
Quick and simple!
I really like the color combo I used and may have to play with it again sometime soon. The flower images are from "Embrace Life" by SU. After I colored them with my Copics, I cut them out and adhered them with dimensionals. The background paper is from the retired Bali Breeze collection, which I totally stocked up on before it was gone for good.

I added a scalloped border and a rub-on sentiment to finish it off.

And as with EVERY sketch challenge that I do now, I also have a Christmas card to share with you today.

Here's my Christmas version using the same sketch...
Remember this little cutie from SU's "Polar Pals"? The patterned paper is from the Figgy Pudding collection by Basicgrey and matched perfectly to Baha Breeze cardstock.

I stamped out the scarf image from "Cold Play" onto Close to Cocoa cardstock and trimmed it to fit my chubby little penguin.

Thanks for stopping by!
Which sketch are you going to re-visit??

Be sure to check out what the rest of the sketch team gals did:
Dawn, Kim, Kirsten, Kristy, Maria, Kendra & Tamara

Oh, and if you're in the market for some stamps, check out what I've got listed for sale here.
Have a super weekend! I'll be back on Monday with something a little twisted for you.

Great cards! It's too funny that we both did the same sketch. I love that you used the scarf on the penguin. I think I might be CASEing that idea!
