Mother's Day Watering Can

I just couldn't put away the Papertrey Ink's Green Thumb set before I made a couple more cards(I made a card yesterday with it, as well)....still have a couple more images that are "calling" me...but here's one I made for Mother's Day...my mom LOVES gardening and flowers!!
 Used sentiment from Verve (Because of You) and watering can from PTI(Green Thumb) the flowers and leaves are separate dies from Memory Box Fancy Blossoms(LOVE their dies!!!).  I stamped with versamark on silver paper and embossed with silver powder.  I cut the watering can out, then took versamark and MORE silver powder on handle of can to cover up the tough cutting edges:)!!  Loved the emboss on the leaves...yes, they die cut JUST like you see them...here's a closer look at the shiny can...
AND...I made another card, this one with a pot and stems from Green Thumb. Stamped the pot in Cajun Craze and used the same Memory Box flowers in Turqoise with Paper Smooches sentiment...
Used the Linen/Canvas Papertrey Ink Impression Plate...FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Both cards are just adorable Lisa and I'm off to check out those dies before everyone else rushes to do the same ...Lol

Both are lovely Lisa but I particularly like the top one with the cut out watering can - well worth the fiddle!

Could you possibly give me the name of the specific flower die from Memory Box? I've looked at a lot of Memory Box dies and have a long wish list, but don't remember seeing little flowers like these. These cards are so sweet!!
