April showers brings May flowers

Hello to you on this wet & chilly day. I was keeping my fingers crossed that May was going to bring us some nicer weather after the lovely day we had yesterday ... but I think we are going to have to wait a while longer. Still, at least I have a visit to the dentist to look forward to this afternoon!

This is a card I've made for a few flower themed challenges. I used the sketch below which also had a theme of 'April showers brings May flowers'

I used a House Mouse decoupage from the 'Spring is Mice' collection. The paper is from 'The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady' paper stack, but as these are 6 x6 inches I had to cheat and join 2 together under the ribbon. I cut the flowers with Marianne Creatables LR0189 die and the corner from LR0143

I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Crafty Pad challenge 'April Showers Bring May Flowers' and/or sketch
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Flower Power'
The Paper Shelter challenge 'Photo Inspiration' Bluebells
Whoopsi Daisy challenge 'Pile on the Flowers'
