MojoMonday sketch & Card Samples

So, in my last post I suggested to check out

Each Monday, a new sketch is made available to help inspire us when making cards. They also have contests based on the sketch. So fun!
Here is the sketch for this week:
I went ahead and made 2 cards based off the sketch. One is more fun and child-like and the other is more sophisticated and elegant. I made 2 samples to show you how different a card can be when working off a sketch. I had so much fun making these!

The "Wish Big" card is pretty much a replica of the sample - except I didn't have a circle punch large enough to replicate the half circles you see at the bottom of the strip so I improvised and used my Scallop Trim Border Punch. 

The "Happiness Always" card used some elements of the sample sketch but it isn't an exact replica. And that's the beauty of sketches - they are to inspire you.

I love both of them but the Wish Big is more colorful. I really love it and it can be flexible for both boy or girl... or man/woman.

The first one is more feminine. I like the fact that the 2nd one is more universal...
