Water Can

It's Thursday and time for an OLDIE BUT GOODIE over at Catch the Bug. is the image I used: Flower Water Cans - Rose Can.
I colored the image using Promarkers and added glitter to the roses. To reduce the white space I used a blue Promarker to make little dots. Didn't like the look of it at all, so I applied blue DI, thinking it would cover the dots. It didn't but I quite like the effect of it.
The white paper with stripes is embossed. I used a LawnFawn die to make the banner, stamped a sentiment and attached it with a blue button with string. I was inspired by a previous sketch from Sketch Saturday for the layout.

This card is for these challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Pick any sketch (#333)
Passion For Promarkers Challenge - #321 Embossing
ABC Challenge - U is for Unlimited

I love this with the watering can and flowers and just that touch of button....wonderful card.
I have had to open a new blogger as google plus messed with mine after I changed my background and all and I don't like the way the comments had to be made...the link to my new one is below and follow again to enter my candy.. Now I am getting robot thingies on everyone's blog where you have to match pictures up before you can publish a comment...can't win...xx
