A watering can

It is Tracey here with my post for July ...The theme for the Dt this month is "Out of shape" which means we have made projects that are Not rectangular or square and we are to feature plaids or pastel colours..I fancied making something a little different than a card for you this month so i made this cute watering can using a fab template from Dreamies which has been on my shelf for a very long time   .. The papers are from My Minds Eye .The flowers are all hand made using matchingMy Minds Eye papers.The leaves are made using a cheery lynn die .The butterflies are made using a tonic die.The stamped sentiment is from Cardio.The scotts roses stamp is by trimcraft,,The pretty organza ribbon i have used came from my Mpp pack this month so thanks Donna ,it is lovely.I made the triple looped bow using my Craft-Dee Bowz bow making tool..such an fool proof way to turn out stunning bows time after time with ease
