Same...but different

A couple of cards today using the October LO from The Sketch File - it's the last week before the new sketch goes live, so not long left to play along.
I wanted to show how the same sketch can be manipulated to create two totally different cards.
For one I replaced the ribbon-stripes in the sketch and shrunk it down to make a row of tiny plants in pots, and in the other I replaced them with trees to make a Christmas card.
 I dug some old and very neglected Quickutz dies out to make this one
 Materials and Tools
Papers are MMT 6x6 Indie Chic "Ginger"
EK Success border punch, Spellbinders Nesties Labels 1
Quickutz Dies; 3x Small Flowers, Small Flower Pots
Hand cut paper "Bow", Imaginisce hot fix pink gems

 Materials and Tools
All papers Funky Hand "Winter Wonderland" download - printed onto card
Silver Glitter card (Best Creations), Silver crochet thread
Craft Robo to cut the five trees, EK Success small stars punch

This is the sketch I was using - you can find it HERE and see more projects made by the DT using it by scrolling through the last few posts on The Sketch File

Your ideas are great Kathy. I especially like the blue trees, different and stunning too. You've got me inspired to have a go with sketches.
