watering can happy birthday card


When CAS-ual Fridays posted a shaped cards challenge I immediately thought of the free downloads on the Waltzingmouse Stamps website, so I thought it'd be fun to throw in the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge with my WMS free watering can template.  I kept thinking I should add more to this card, but since it's a CAS card challenge I've left it fairly simple, which is perfect for Yvonne's new Do More With Less challenge of "go minimal".  And is anyone surprised I made a kraft and red card?  

Materials: Waltzingmouse Frame It sentiment, Hero Arts Classic Fabric cling, Waltzingmouse watering can template, Studio112 dimensional stickers, PTI Mat Stack 1 die, PTI In Bloom Impression plate, Core'dinations card stock, PTI Kraft card stock, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink, Versamark
