April Showers


Time for another new challenge at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days and this time the theme is                                   April Showers
 Pop on over to the challenge blog to see the DT inspiration and to join in. We are also holding a DT call - looking for at least 3 new members so if you like working with digi stamps and can commit to producing 1 project per fortnight get in touch before the 27th April - no DT experience necessary!
Anyway on to my own card, I don't always have a chance to look at other challenges to use as a starting point but as I am on holiday I decided to look at some  for inspiration and chose the colours from the canyoudigiit challenge as a starting point. I have used Jenni's image "inspire" which I matched up with a lovely little Spring verse I found  on the internet. The backing paper is a Basic Grey which I stamped round the edge to give it more definition and the pink one is from a free magazine pack. The flowers are of course Wild Orchid.
I am also entering these challenges: secret garden inspiration photo
