Peachy Keen Challenge #4

Wow, it doesn't seem five minutes since I did my cute little snowman and we're on to
Challenge number 4!!!!

Here's my sample for the sketch.

The challenge is to use three buttons, stripes and a greeting on a DL card.
Please pop over to the Peachy Keen challenge blog for all the details, the sketch and to have a look at the sample cards made by the other VERY talented DT members.
You don't have to have Peachy Keen stamps to play, it would be nice, but it's not obligatory.

I've used the potted sunflower from the 'Potted Happy Flower' set for this card.
I had intended using the actual watering can from the set, but I found these buttons and well, I HAD to use them, didn't I!!
I used Glamour dust as 'water' from the watering can pouring over the sunflower.

I paper pieced the flower pot with the same striped paper from my stash. I think it's Papermania, but couldn't swear to it.
SU oval punches for the greeting and coloured with Copics.

Hope you like it as much I liked making it. Have a great Tuesday!!! Viv xxx

Viv, this is just too cute. I might have to play along with this challenge. I love those buttons and they are perfect for both the sketch and the image. The paper pieced pot is adorable. And the dots in the ribbon really tie the whole thing together. Just a wonderful card.
