Step 7:  Cut a slit across the top of the Watering Can, slip the flower stems through the slit and tape in place on the back, use foam tape to pop two of the flowers up, add some extra leaves around the flowers
Step 8:  Cut a 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" piece of green stripe paper, edge with a green marker, adhere the flower layer to the green paper
Step 9:  Cut a 5 1/4" x6 1/2" piece of the Graphic45 paper, edge with a pink marker, adhere to the card front
