BBTB Short Cuts George Flower Sketch Challenge

This week at BBTB we have a fabulous sponsor, Short Cuts, and I was one of the lucky designers to receive some of their products to work with. Besides a cool gift card folder I got some really nice vinyl both clear and frosted. I'd never worked with frosted before so I was anxious to play. I tried embossing it with the Cuttlebug Paisley folder because I wanted to use some of K&Co. Wild Raspberry paper and although you can't tell from the pic it turned out kinda neat. I really love how the frosting toned down the bright paper. We also were to use the George flower and follow a sketch. This was difficult for me at best so what did I do? What any self respecting card maker would do, added a bunch of bling and a huge bow! LOL When I look at it I don't even recognize it as my own but I guess that is what a challenge is for. Be sure to check out BBTB to see what my fabulous DT sisters did with this challenge. None of them seemed to have any trouble coming up with gorgeous projects. And be sure to enter the contest, because 2 lucky winners will receive $20 gift certificate to Short Cuts. You may do up to 2 entries based on the sketch and the contest runs through June 22. They are also offering a 15% discount through June so check out BBTB for the code.
