Early bird celebration!

Hi everyone!  Thanks for stopping in today.  I was able to play this morning and as a really great starting point, I saw the VLVSEP01 sketch for the September Verve release.  It was hosted by Julee this week and along with her sketch, we had to use small circular items.  I have small circular items, but which to use...?  I really narrowed it down to these rhinestones.  I set them in the little holes that the MS punch makes in the center of the embossed flowers border.  
The image I used is from PaperTrey Ink and I stamped it in SU basic gray classic ink.  I coloured in with my Copics, cut out, put dimensionals on the back of the image and mounted on an oval that I used a classic nestability on.  The edges were sponged with SU So Saffron (as were all other edges of the borders) and the borders were made with the wide MS scallop and the embossed flower scallop.  The sentiment is also PTI and cut out with my SU word slot punch.  Here is a close-up of the flowers and jug.  The rhinestones are from K & Co.  The twill is MS from my stash.  The lovely paper is Cosmo Cricket from the new "Early Bird" mini deck!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great Friday,
