S2G - Twisted Thursday #22 - Punch It!!

I'm back today with a sample for Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday. We got this fun sketch (designed by Joy - thanks, Joy!) to work with, as well as the twist - which is to use some kind of punch. I'm really enjoying my new little Janome Sew Mini, and I feel like I'm really getting the hang of it. I just love how stitching adds such an interesting and unique detail.

I really liked what you did with this week's sketch. You can't go wrong with polka dots, but I also thought the patterned papers you selected were very festive!
