Ampersand Thanks

Welcome back to Freshly Made Sketches, where Jen Brum has designed a fun sketch with lots of little elements.




I love this sketch and decided to have a bit of fun with it. 


 I punched out 8 circles using my 3/4" circle punch and 8 circles using my 1/2" circle punch.  The bottom layer is from Modern Medley and the top layer from Soho Subway and Epic Day.

To add a bit of interest to the Pool Party layer, I embossed the panel with the Ampersand EF.  The sentiment comes from Another Thank You.  I pulled the ends of the Calypso Coral Baker's Twine between my fingernails to curl the ends.


Thanks for visiting.  If you haven't checked out the Freshly Made Sketches blog, go and check out the amazing samples from the rest of the DT.
