Instructions: My card is 6 x 6". Make card base and cover with one of the card fronts. Cut out the large circle scallop edge die using the green cardstock. Find a coordinating piece of the paper collection and cut out a plain circle to fit just inside the scallop die cut. Glue the two pieces together and mount with dimensional tape.

Stamp the watering can with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as well as the fence. Use coordinating dies to cut out. I used Black Soot Distress ink to shade in the two pieces. I cut a slice in the lid of the watering can to slip the flowers down inside. Set aside.

Stamp the flowers and leaves and color using Leaf Green and Majestic Violet inks. Cut out and run the petals through the Tulip Mold. I always spritz the flowers so they take a better shape. Glue the petals together to help them hold their shape. Punch a hole in the bottom of the petals and thread through the stamens. Use hot glue to hold the stamens in place. Glitter the edges of the flowers and set aside to dry. Add the leaves and flowers to the stamped floral piece and slide down inside the slit in the top of the watering can. Glue to hold the flowers and leaves inside. Glue watering can to the circle on the card front and cover with the picket fence. I attached the fence with dimensional tape. Next cut out a ticket from the paper collection and using dimensional tape adhere to the front of the fence.
