Freshly Made Sketches #548

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #548!

I am hosting the sketch this week and came up with a narrow vertical panel to add interest to the card front. I wanted to use the largest of the Simply Graphic Ancres (anchors) dies on the large part of the panel and went looking for design elements that would echo and repeat the anchor.

As you can see, there is no shortage of anchors in my stash. The white stitched rectangle panel is embossed with a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder and then a scrap of patterned paper added along the right side.

The MFT All About Dad sentiment is heat embossed, divided into two simple strips and popped up below the anchor die cut.

I hope you check out the fabulous Clean Team designs and play along with us this week!
