Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #33

I did this challenge today. Another one of Beate's wonderful challenge's.
When I saw the sketch I knew I had to use the little asian coins that I had just picked up at Walmart.
The card base size is 3"1/2 x 8" 1/2 in Wild Wasabi -SU. I have never made this card size before. I really like it.

Then I did a layer of DP that I had from DCWV - Far East 1"3/4 and Purely Pomegrante 1"1/2- SU. I know these 2 pieces are not the same size, but I wanted to showcase the DP more. I used a 1/16"hole punch on the DP to put the coins on with a brad. I find it easier to just use the hand punch then the eyelet setter.

The next layer is Wild Wasabi - SU 2"1/4 x 7" 1/4. Then the Purely Pomegrante - SU 1" 7/8 x 1 7/8 then on top Shimmery White - SU 1" 3/4 x 1 3/4. The sketch called for ribbon along the bottom, but I didn't think ribbon would match the card very well, so I used some hemp twine instead. (pat on the back to me, much better ;-)) Then tied a bigger coin on to that. Done & Done. Enjoy, TFL
