Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Easter/Spring

 Hello my friends!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme, chosen by Birgit this time around, is:

 As you can see, I decided to go with Spring vs Easter.  I've had this watering can in my die stash for quite some time and thought this would be a good time to bring it out.  If you're like me, I am SO READY for SPRING!!!   

Did you notice I created a 'shiplap' panel for the watering can background?  I just love that set of Ship Lap Builder dies from The Greetery.  And the background paper is by Mintay  ... 'Springtime' purchased through Frantic Stamper.  These were actually a couple pieces of scraps that I taped together .


I've die cut the Elizabeth Craft 'Garden Water Can' from designer paper from the same Mintay 6x6 paper pack.  In fact, it is the flip side of the pink gingham.


 I've also used Frantic Stamper 'Spring' (FRA9402) for my sentiment and the wellies came from the Frantic Stamper 'Rainy Day Necessities' die set (FRA10390).

 Frantic Stamper - Dies - Rainy Day

 The little flowers here & there are those that fell from the wellies die cut.  I've used Nuvo green crystal drops for the centers of the flowers.
