Spotty Dotty Watering Can....

It's Thursday....almost the weekend, Yeah! I am posting a card today for the progressive challenge put on each week by Faith at  Delightful Inspirations and since  this is the first week of the month, you can pick up the "Spotty Dotty Watering Can" for free and if you create something with each weeks freebie, you will continue to receive Faith's new image each week. This will also work for the challenge to use dots or spots on your creation at Card Ideas which showcases Faith's images from Designed 2 Delight.
For this card, I tried the faux pressed flower technique that I found on SCS here . I used design paper from DCWV and some solids from the same pack to layer my papers. The flowers were punched from some of these with a Stampin' Up punch and I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder to complete the technique. I can't wait to try this again with some other images. I colored my image with copics and SU markers and highlighted with my stardust glitter pen. For the inside I used some more of the paper and used a rub on that I have had for quite a while which is from Stampin' Up.
 Hope you can join in on the fun and pick up your freebie this week....she has already done a sneak peak for next week and it is adorable. Talk to you soon.
