Thinking of you Aunty

I have had occassion recently to make a card for an aunt of mine. She is going through some rough times so I wanted her to know that I was thinking of her. I wanted something that would be cheerful and I ended up picking a beautiful image by Designed 2 Delight Digital Stamps. I had gotten it awhile ago as the start to a month of challenges. Unfortunately, I was not able to participate, but loved the image so much that I wanted to use it somehow. As I was going through all of my images I came across this one again and knew right away it would be perfect.
It's called the Spotty Dotty Watering Can and isn't it just the most cheerful image? I colored it with my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and trimmed the circle and the butterfly's with my pink metalic gel pen. The fold was by Sandy Hulsart and you can find the tutorial here.
