Here's what I came up with:
I embossed the Hello Doily with the new Pool Party embossing powder, I added a large pearl in the center.  Tied the sentiment from Petite Pairs with Pool Party bakers twine and punched it out using the modern label punch.
This is the first time for me using the new pool party embossing powder and I love it !
