Here is this week's sketch

Today I have two takes on this sketch!! One more fun and the other more inspirational...The first card I created with some scrap Paper from SEI and the Wags N Whiskers New release Let's Go Team. I colored her in with water colors and used paper tole to give her dimension. For a fun twist on the bows of the sketch, I used fun fur to look more like pom poms.
My Second card uses the new release from Our Daily Bread Designs called Mom and the Vine Borders stamp set from last month. It is framed using a gold embossed Fleur De Lis Spellbinders die and Fancy Tags. The butterflies are created with the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch. The pearls are pink ZVA Creative flourishes. The paper is retired SU paper. I also made this card for Betty's Stamping In Time challenge at ODBD which is to use monochromatic colors.

Wow, Chris! These are sensational. I like that you have done two cards using the same sketch - similar, but VERY different. Beautiful work as always : )
