Digital Tuesday Challenge, 'April Showers bring May Flowers'

Here's my first DT entry for the new challenge blog Digital Tuesday. This weeks theme is April Showers bring May Flowers, and the deets direct from the challenge blog "Make a card that has something to do with rain, or flowers", so, easy enough!
Now I drew my inspiration from Michelle Peterson and this card here , I could NOT get it out of my head (ever have that...something that just STICKS? I had to create something just to quiet my mind, so this is what I came up with). I used Susie Squirrel watering flowers from Digital Stamp Oasis, colored her in with Copics and then I cut her out with my Nestabilites and embossed her, but before I removed my die, I sponged a little pink ink around her for a nice edge, I then layered her onto a scalloped, embossed circle. I then punched a strip of paper with my Martha Stewart Lace border punch and then I put that through my Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots, tied some organza ribbon around it and then layered that on another layer of embossed paper (stylized flowers). I then added some punchies in the corner and glittered a couple of them up.
I hope you are able to join in on the fun this week at Digital Tuesday Challenge, one lucky recipient will win 3 of Dustin Pike's images of their choosing. If you are not familiar with Dustin Pike's images take a little peek around my blog, as I have made a few cards with his images, I just LOVE them...and I have a few more cards that are waiting to be made with his images, or just go to his blog and take a little peek...and psst...every Wednesday he GIVES a FREEBIE away...
