Summer Thank You

Good Morning!

Today it is time for another sketch challenge at The Memory Nest, the first one of the summer.
I have been on a little bit of a roll lately using The Memory Nest sketches to make cards (see here and here) and this time around is no different.

For this card I turned the design but kept all the layering elements in place. I substituted the row of three photos seen on the sketch for three embellishments (two buttons and a strawberry) placed along the green semi circle. 
I used Jillibean Soup papers (again) because I love them so much.
I was so enjoying my creative time, working away at my craft table, that I went on to make a second card.
I would say this card is more inspired by the sketch rather than one that includes all the design elements...but that is the point of sketches, to inspire, is it not?
With so many events filling up the calendar this summer, I think it will be handy to have a few handmade summer thank you cards on hand, ready for when I need to write a quick note of appreciation.

Thank you for stopping by and looking at what I have created. 

Be sure to visit The Memory Nest for more inspiration and to link up your own projects.
