Sketch Hop challange with Crafty Card Gallery

Hi! Welcome to the Sketch blog hop! The purpose of this hop is to show how all of these talented bloggers can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards. If you've never used a card sketch before, give it a try! Be sure to check back on Sunday, as there will be some bloggers posting cards on day 2. So sit back & be inspired! If you came from Beth then you are in the right place :)

Here is the sketch we had to work with and be inspired by
I have done two cards for this challange and because of family commitments with moving house I decided to post them both today. The first one I tried to stick to the sketch it is

The second on I flipped the sketch on the side and changed a few of the elements positions to come up with a completly different card. Here it is

I love sketches. I am not to sure how many of you know but I sell my cards and sketches always helps kick start my creativity when making them as there is so many possibilities. I usually use one sketch a night and come up with about 5 different cards...and more in mind. If you have not used sketches yet, I encourage you to as it will help you to explore new ideas and get more creative with your cards.
I hope you enjoyed my cards. Your next stop will be the lovely Lynda

Here is a list in case you get lost :)

Love the colors in your first card..Perks you up when you see it and that is what cards are for..I use Page Maps alot in my scrapbooking so I know what you mean about using the sketches..I will start out with the map for inspiration and alot of times by the end of my layout I have changed it up to the point you don't see the map any longer..but that's what they are for, to stimulate your mojo and get you going..:)
