Just Us Girls- Design Team Tryout

Good Morning!
This is my entry for the Just Us Girls Design team call.  I went to the Creative Keepsakes Convention in Manchester, NH on Saturday and brought home all kinds of goodies.  So I couldn't wait to play!  LOL!  The challenge was to make a project using a template and then a card following their sketch.  I chose the Around Town Tote from PTI.  (It's one of my favorites).  The paper I chose is from October Afternoons-The Thrift Shop.  These papers were just itching to be made into a project!  I learned this new technique where you take a paper flower put a little glossy accents in the middle and then twist it up and swirl it in Distress Stickles and then cluster them all around each other.  I put mine around three Prima flowers I had put up on pop-ups.   (I took a close up below.)  For my card I pulled colors from my template so I could coordinate it.  I found this little door handle in my stash and just had to use it on my card. My sentiment is from MTME and it fit perfectly on the new Spellbinders- labels ten.  It seems to flow well with the sketch!  I hope you like my project!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by!  Have a good one!
