April Showers...

Hi All, time for a new challenge at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days.This time we are hoping to see lots of cards or projects which have used the following recipe; 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments. My three are flowers, lace and the button. The challenge is sponsored by Waxfruit. The image I have used this time is one of Cardmadfairy's own digital ones which are so easy to use and I love the fact that you can make a digital image any size you like, instead of being restricted by the size of a physical stamp. The papers were actually a freebee from a card magazine which I have had for years , the sticky ribbons come from a set which has been in my bits and pieces drawer for so long I had forgotten all about them and likewise the fabric flowers have been hanging about for donkey's years! I added brads to the centre of the flowers to liven them up and the large flower, leaf flourish and oval are made out of glitterboard from Southfield Stationers. The button and lace are from my stash and lastly I inked the edge of the image with 'worn lipstick' distress ink just to define the edge.
I am entering the following challenges;
