Crafty Calendar Challenge DT card



Good morning!
This month the challenge at Crafty Calendar Challenge   is "April showers bring forth flowers" and it's sponsored by Sentiments 4 You. There are lots of beautiful floral themed cards made by the rest of the Design Team to give you inspiration and you have a month to enter!

I used Single Rose   digi image (£1.00!!) which was one of my first release but one which I use for lots of different occasions.
If you have a close look you can see the gorgeous leaf die cut. It's Forest Branch by Marianne Creatables and I won it as a prize in a challenge on PaperCraftPlanet for my Love is in the Air card and as soon as it arrived in the post I cut out lots of them in white and tried various patterns. I liked the simplicity of this design so I made a set in various colours..
Also, my Mothers Day box style card was one of the top 3 at Pals Paper Arts this week
Challenges
ABC   ..R is for Roses
Less is More  ...a touch of red
