Wags 'n Whiskers Sketch Challenge

Wags 'n Whiskers has a new challenge!  It's a sketch.
I've come to really like sketches.  Especially when my mojo is not working.  Sketches provide a decent amount of inspiration to get your creative spices going.
Have you come across any sketches that you use over and over?  Do you like creating your own sketches?
Here is W&W's sketch challenge to follow:
Make sure you read the challenge rules that are posted at the
top of the Wags 'n Whiskers blog.  
One lucky participant will win a free Wags ‘nWhiskers Rubber Stamp!
You don’t have to use a Wags ‘n Whiskers image on your card, but if you do, you will be entered into a 2nd drawing for a free Wags ‘n Whiskers Digi!
Now onto my cards using the fabulous W&W digi - Chillin' Out (also available as a rubber stamp) printed onto watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os:

I made two cards to use up the paper that I had.  These are Stampin Up DP called Gingham Garden.  They are very pretty.  All four DP papers are just two papers.  Stampin Up papers are double sided.  I like their papers a lot except when you have a favorite of one paper in the pack, you only get two sheets.  I wish they actually sold one sheet as an option.  Kind of like when you get the single sheets from Joann's or Michael's. 
This first card's base is SU Daffodil Delight.
Flowers: Primas
Brads: my stash
 The "sand" is Frantage.  I still have some practice using it, but it's pretty cool. 
 I made my own envelope because the card is 5 1/2 squared.  I can't find any envelopes to fit perfectly.  I cut the paper 9x9 and scored at an angle at 3 3/8.  It slides in perfectly.

 The base of this card is PTI Hibiscus Burst.
