2 Sisters Challenge ~ Make Your Own Embellishments

This week at 2 Sisters the challenge is to make your own embellishments. We are being sponsored this week by two amazing companies...Crafty Sentiments & One Stop Card Crafts. The design team was given a couple images to play around with from Crafty Sentiments. The image that I used on my card is called Bear Couple 2. The embellishment that I made is the flower at the bottom of the card. I punched a retro flower out of white cardstock and then embossed it using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) and then I punched a mini retro flower out of blue and added them on top of each other and added a pastel blue rhinestone to the center of the flower.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft: Monochromatic

The Crafty Pad: Use A Digi

Paper Sundaes: Embossing

Wild Orchid: Dieing To Punch It Out

Incy Wincy: Embossing

Lexis Creations: Ribbons But No Bows/Knots
