Printable Vinyl with the Imagine

I purchased some printable vinyl a while back and finally had a chance to use it. I just love working with vinyl with my Expression, but wasn't sure how the Imagine would work out. I really loved the thought of being able to print a pattern instead of my usual solid color vinyl projects. It was really easy to use and the project came out great. I did notice that the more intricate and smaller designs didn't cut as well, but overall, it was super fun. I decided to decorate a tin from Michaels to hold some birthday goodies for a scrapbooking friend of mine. 
I started with an image cut at 3.5 inched from the Imagine More Cards Cartridge using the layers feature. I was careful to smooth it out onto the surface. I decided to use some dimensionals to pop-up the "friend" image and the "butterfly" image. I didn't do too much embellishing, just a few little pearls and called it good.
