Paper Smooches Sparks - Designer Draft June 2013

Hi all! I'm on vacation visiting our families back in Illinois and Wisconsin, but I did take some craft supplies, you know, just in case I got to create! And I did! I made a card loosely based on the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge - designer draft.

Here is the sketch:


It's pretty much like the sketch, I just had to flip the sentiment and flower elements. I even did some masking for the sentiment! I stamped, colored and fussy cut the watering can. Stamped the flower (on two of them, I stamped off on some scrap then inked around the edges, one I just stamped off once before stamping). After fussy cutting I attached them to the watering can, one directly to the can, one using glue dots, and one with foam squares for different levels of dimension. The can was attached with foam squares also. I added the rhinestones, because I love al little bling... and I wanted to! Ha!

Sorry for the wonky non-watermark! I don't have my editing software on my laptop and had to go 'old school'! LOL!

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for stopping by! We may be going out on the pontoon to cruise the lakes one last time before heading back down to my parents tomorrow. Have a great day!
