No Lion- Once Sketch, Two Cards!

I'm back today with an image from Sandra Caldwell's new release this week.  This image is called #1133 Barely A Coward.  I started coloring the lion in traditional colors and then as I was going to work one day, I had the idea to color him in blues for a baby card (boys have been born in my family lately).  My idea for blue changed when I pulled out my 6x6 pack of boy baby papers.  The sentiment on the left is from PTI and the one below is a die from Mama Elephant.  I borrowed an idea from one of my fellow DT members, Bonnie Irving, and double fussy cut the turquoise lion from Bermuda Bay paper,

The sketch from this week's Paper Players challenge is used for the card layout on both cards.

Check out Sandra's Etsy shop for all of today's images and Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook Page to take at peek at the DT work.
