CPS sketch contest

I've been a lurker at CPS for a while and really admire the fantastically creative sketches they post. I've even attempted a few, but only in the privacy of my own studio. *grin* I saw last week that they were having a contest and decided to come out of hiding and give it a shot! It's a fun sketch, and quite versatile. My problem with contest sketches, is that I never know just how much changing one can do to the original design, you know? I mean, should I take it and really run with it, or should I stick to the plan? I just don't know. You are allowed three entries though, so I did all 3 this weekend. One of them won't be posted until tomorrow though...it's just not quite "on" in my terribly critical opinion. I might be able to see it differently tonight.
Here's the link directly to the contest. Entries are due by May 31st.



I liked how the alternate backgrounds affected this card! SUPPLIES: Basic Grey PP, DCWV cardstock, SU cardstock, Hero Arts ink, black ranger ink, brown ZIG marker, apple brads unknown, apple and sentiment stamps by ScrapGoods, Pop dots.
Here's my second entry:
