Watering Can Thank You

Hey Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been working on.  As I have mentioned in the last couple posts I have been working on a couple card orders, which ended up having a ton of Thank you cards in them.  You will be happy to know that I have completed all of the thank you cards, so will be changing it up after this post and moving towards Birthday Cards for both genders, and also Birthday Cards for children.  I will continue to post my Christmas Card Challenges Posts once every other week, and am trying to play along with a couple challenges here and there, but we are moving onto Birthday!  Yay!

Here's the last Thank You card!  I  started with the image and coloured it with a pattern paper in mind.  I then chose the rest of the papers out of my scraps of paper (as some of you know I love to use up my scraps, and try to do this before reaching for NEW paper) to finish off the card.  When I was looking for the flag die in my die drawer I came across the thank you die, which I have NEVER used, and to be honest didn't even know that I had, so this was SOOOOO exciting for me.  I love the font of the wording, so this is in my mental notes to not forget about this beauty again.  

Here's the front of the card...
