PPC102 Playing in Paradise Sketch

Good morning everyone!  This week at the Playing in Paradise challenge, Allison has given us a really great sketch to work with. 

I decided to take this sketch and see how many layers I could add to it,
while still keeping the original design.
It was pretty easy to add layers with the beautiful paper line Serenade by Bo Bunny!  I tucked a few coordinating mats behind and then layered on the top with my image and 
lots of fussy cut flowers from the paper line.  The little yellow flowers I left flat, but the burgundy ones, I crumpled up to break down the paper fibers and then
ruffled them so they had some dimension. 
The gold roses were made using Spellbinders Shapeability die "Bitty Blossoms".  I really love this die.  Flowers are very easy to make with it.  After I cut the roses from a piece of yellow Serenade paper, I painted them with some glimmering gold paint.  Added some lace and a tulle bow,
plus some red "bling", and I was done!
You really have to go over to the Playing in Paradise challenge this week and see what the rest of the design team did with it ...  let me tell you ... there's some awesome cards, and even a layout! 
Just goes to show you, how versatile a sketch can be!
Then give it a try yourself!  There's a fabulous prize package
of scrapping goodies worth $25 waiting to be won!
You have until noon MST, next Thursday, Februry 7th to get your entry in.
You could be the lucky winner!
