Freshly Made Sketches #563

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #563!

I love the creative freedom the sketch from the queen of big, bold blossoms, Jennifer Brum,  gives us this week! Do you choose to take advantage of the wide open panel or focus on the offset circle focal point? As you can see, I did a little of both.

I adore the Taylored Expressions Peppermint Kisses stencil and die set that is used to make the pretty candy cane and holly cluster. I did substitute a few enamel dots instead of using the berry die cut.

The Lawn Fawn Merry Messages sentiment is stamped and heat embossed, ready to be added to the panel when I paused. I didn't want to add any more color to the design but went looking for an embossing folder to add texture and interest. A Tim Holtz Snow Flurries folder hit the spot for me.

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

Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends celebrating the holiday this week!

Thanks for stopping by,
