Coming up roses, Crafty Calendar Challenges DT card

Good morning!
Can you actually believe it's the first Friday of March already? Well, that means it's time for another Crafty Calendar challenge and this month's theme is Flower Power with the optional extra of pastel shades.So here, is my DT card..
I've used one of my new rose digi images available from A Passion for Stamps and coloured it with Promarkers to match the lovely embroidery thread I've used for stitching.
The card also fits the following challenges
Passion for Promarkers....Back to nature
Creative Inspirations....lace,pins and pearls
CRAFT challenges...Mother/flowers
Totally Papercrafts...Mother/Special lady
My Time to Craft...Just for Mum
I feel I must apologize to everyone whose emails,messages and comments I have not answered in the last couple of weeks. My mother has been ill for a couple of weeks and things got a lot worse at the beginning of this week. It has been very stressful and,of course, time consuming, but she is my priority for the time being and hopefully things will improve soon.
I also have new digi images on hold ready to release when I can get my head cleared. If I am not around or do not answer for a while please understand that I don't mean to cause offence, but time and energy for crafting is severly limited!Thanks for understanding.

Dont' forget...
SALE of unmounted clear stamps
I'm having a sale of my polymer clear unmounted stamps to coincide with the launch of my new digi images.
The clear stamps are all HALF PRICE and the sale prices are marked beside them in the sidebar.
