I normally stick pretty close to the sketch but I recently sorted my not-yet-used Christmas stash (which is still overflowing and some products date back years) and I pulled out those that I am absolutely definitely for-sure going to use this year. Then I looked at the sketch and realized I hadn't pulled out anything close to a those circles. But I had pulled out a poinsettia that's roughly circular. Of course, the leaves aren't close to circles but I got the right number of them in the right directions and even the right sizes! So I'm going with it.
The die set is a recent addition to my stash, but definitely not new. I hadn't noticed the Seasonal Sketches set before it retired but I'm glad I did. LOVE the look and, retired or not, it will be used over the years. (Greta's card is what caught my eye - a totally different look with gorgeous results.)
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches (whether you use circles or not!)
