Trifle Bowl

Serenity Scrappers is challenging crafters to create an altered project, with vinyl if possible.  I've seen a few trifle bowls fancied up with a bit of vinyl and decided to give it a go myself. 
My trifle bowl is from Pampered Chef.  I cut Bon Appétit and some leaves from Ashlyn's Alphabet.  I chose this cartridge as it has accents and I needed an accent aigu for the phrase.  (I bought Ashlyn's Alphabet especially for the accents.)  I had measured the bowl first and adjusted the letters to get a height with which I was happy.
This project would not have taken long at all, except I missed the accent when I was transferring the vinyl to the bowl.  I had wadded up the painter's tape I was using for the transfer and put it in the garbage.  When I realized that the accent was missing, I went back to the tape and quickly discovered that my daughter's cat thought I'd actually made a ball for her.  As a result, I had to get a bit of the leftover vinyl and cut another accent to use!  Both crafter and cat are happy now.
