Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #85 meets Cloud9

I really should rename my sketches for Sketchbook Mondays, or best Sketchbook Whatever Day It Happens On... I guess now that I made them two-weekers, I feel less pressure to make it on time, and let's face it - Christmastime is not the best to be on track with everything. However, I remember getting frustrated with my favourite challenges not being up when expected, and so once again my apologies to anyone who had to wait! 

I hope you'll like this sketch. It's open for interpretation even more than usual, and I'm sharing two different takes on it to help illustrate the many ways you can use it.

My first card also follows the inspiration from Cloud9 December Blog Hop (photo below the card).

All stamps are from WPlus9, except from the clusters of tiny stars, that I had to "borrow" from a Waltzingmouse set. I used Winter Wishes along with Poinsettia Patterns for the sentiment only.

My second card is a colourful, scrappy, birthday version, with lots of miscellaneous October Afternoon/MME/Crate Paper/Echo Park goodness. The sentiment is from PTI (Big & Bold Wishes).

How 'bout that? I can't wait to see your takes :)

A few things to keep in mind if you decide to use my sketch:
- You're kindly asked to save the image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
- If you upload your card to an online gallery, use the code SSC85.
- Feel free to share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget, so that I can come and check it out!
- The colours/elements mean nothing towards the card. All styles, colours and supplies, as well as slight alterations of the sketch are welcome.
- A new sketch and sample is posted every other Saturday (occasionally Sunday/Monday, if I'm running late), but you're welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section after Inlinkz widget closes.
