Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #56

Hello everyone!  Well it's Monday, and that means it's time for another Kaboodle Doodles Challenge, and for challenge #56, we've got a recipe.  It's a 3-2-1 recipe.  That means for your card or project, you'll need to use 3 patterned papers, 2 solids, and 1 embellishment.  Oops!  I think I didn't follow the directions very well, because technically I have more than one embellishment, although, since I seldome make a card without ribbon, I'm not officially counting the lace ribbon as an embellishment.  Now with the rhinestones, there ARE three, but I'm counting those as one embellishment unto themselves.  LOL!!!  With that reasoning, my card works out just fine for this challenge, right?  See there...  I KNEW I could make it work!!  Heeheehee!!  Oh well, I had fun with this challenge, anyway!
The sponsor for this week's challenge is Gingerloft, and this cute  Pitcher of Flowers image came from their digi store.  I did my best to color the pitcher to look like one of those old granite pitchers that I've seen in antique shops.  I always think they look so cool with fresh flowers in them, and that's what this image reminded me of.   I hope you like what I've done with this one, EVEN if I didn't quite follow the rules like I should have.  Ahhhhh, the best of intentions!!   I sure hope you have a minute or two to do some crafting and play along with our challenge this week.  I'd love to see how much better YOU can follow directions than I!  LOL!!  Have a blessed day, and thanks so much for stopping by!  Wishing you LOTS of happy stamping!

I love the stippling on the watering can. Looks exactly like the old blue enamel cans my mother-in-law had.

You need to do a video over this technique, because it's pretty cool.
