Stella says Sketch and no pink or red

Today starts a new sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug.
I used one of Jodie's water can images, there are several to choose from in the Bugaboo shop.

There's been so muuch red and pink lately so I wanted to use other colors, so I picked an image with flowers I believe looks good in shades of blue.
Lots of WoS for shimmer and stitching with a glittery silver thread.

This card is also for:
Open-Minded Challenges - #14 Flowering in February
Dies R Us Challenge - #67 Think Spring
Crafter's Cafe - #167 No Red or Pink
Brown Sugar -#238 Birthday

How cute! I love the taupe-like-color in the background and on the can, Pia. I especially enjoy the coloring in the flowers with the 2 shades of blue carried through in the sticks and outline! Your stitching is impeccable! Wonderful card! hugs, de

What a sweet way to say "Welcome Spring" with the water can filled with flowers. It's beautifully presented on the lacy doily and your stitching adds a great texture detail as well. TFS & Hugs
