CRAFT Challenge 101 - Sketch

Hi everyone
I have entered two challenges today & this is the first one.  It's for "CRAFT Challenge" & the challenge this week is a sketch - this one;

and here is my card;

 I used Card-io stamps from their Majestix range.  The watering can is part of a set including some vases & the flowers, leaves & butterfly are from the Oriental Blossom set.  The background paper is one left over from a challenge I entered recently & went well with the pink theme. I am not sure where the greeting is from as I found it on my desk stuck to the underside of an ink pad - so I have to go through all my unmounted stamps to find it's correct home. Wendy from Card-io visited one of my stamp clubs last week & demonstrated this watering can (where she doesn't ink the top of it so that the flowers can cascade over without the hard lines of the watering can showing), & I was so taken with it I decided to use it in this challenge.  Below is a closeup photo of the watering can;

I hope you like looking at my little card - please leave a comment it is always appreciated.
Thank you for popping in.

This is a super card. I have some of these stamps somewhere, don't think I have ever used them though.
