Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Here is the card inspiration:

This was the card I did for the Thursday hop.

This week I really just changed the paper and tree image but look how they both look so different.
