Flowers in a Watering Can

Another day closer to Christmas and I still have a few things to buy and some housework to catch up on! After tomorrow night's Carol's Concert I will be finished for the year with my large choir and will only have church choir. They also take a break during January, so will have to sing around the house instead!
We had a late rehearsal tonight and I drop a friend off before coming home so instead of about a 15 min trip it probably takes me at least 30 minutes. I watched the tail end of a film just to relax a bit and then sat down to make this card,
I have used SU Concord Crush for the basecard, border punched one edge with a Martha Stewart punch and then layered a piece of DP from a Paper Pizazz book of papers that I've had in my stash for about 4 years. I bought it on sale and pulled it out a couple of weeks ago to give some to a friend who couldn't find the right bit of paper for her card. The second piece of DP is from My Mind's Eye. I stamped the image onto white card, coloured with Copic Markers and rounded the corners and then adhered it to a piece of Concord Crush and then mounted it to the front of the card.
The stamp I used is from a used set of stamps called "Happy Birthday" made by Our Daily Bread Designs. I used SU Choc Chip ink to stamp it with and Hunter Green for the little sentiment from SU Petite Pairs.
I am going to enter this into Make It Monday Challenge #68 - Anything Goes
Enjoy the rest of the day,
