Watering Can with daisies

Good morning everyone. Today I am playing along with the sketch challenge 154 over at CPS. I really struggled with this sketch. I am trying to use more plain cardstock instead of printed paper which is a really difficult thing for me to do. I think that my card came out really pretty though.

My focal point is the watering can filled with beautiful daisies. This stamp comes in the "Autumn Blessings" Borders & Centers set by JustRite. It is a large oval stamp but the great thing about these stamps is their versatility. Just because the stamp is oval doesn't mean that it needs to be cut into an oval. I colored it with Copics and diecut it with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles. I matted it onto several layers of yellow and green cardstock.

My three little daisy circles on the side are also a stamp by JustRite. It is in the "Beautiful Blossoms" Borders & Centers set. I just stamped & colored the image and then used a 1" circle punch to punch out the part that I wanted.

My sentiment in the lower right hand corner comes from the "Seeds of Kindness" Borders & Centers set (JustRite). I think the sentiment fit perfectly with the beautiful daisies.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
