Digital Tuesday DT card

This week at Digital Tuesday it's Ellie's turn to host and she chose the challenge theme "April Showers or April Flowers".
We have another fab sponsor this week, Di's Downloads and Di is giving away 4 of her digital images to one lucky winner. She also let the design team chose an image to play with.

I came across Di's digi's a while back and I fell in love with her cute characters the minute I set eyes on them (if you have been following my blog for a while you may remember the first time I used one of her cute images and I said then that I was in love with her images) and if you haven't checked out her images before, you have just got to go check them out. I spent ages deciding which image to choose for this challenge but finally I picked a cute little mouse, who I did intend colouring grey but I wanted to use my new promarkers and I don't have grey yet, so she turned into a brown mouse lol.

I saw the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and I just had to have a go with it.
The papers are more I got from Debs except the little creamy piece under the image which is Papermania (I have a story about this paper which I will tell in a min).
I curled the corner of  my image and tied it with some ribbon and used a Mcgill decorative corner punch to punch the corner of my image mat so you can see it under the curled up bit. You can't really see it very well here but it looks quite pretty irl.
The brown flower is one I made, the pink one underneath is a Prima and  I added an organza rose from Hobbycraft in the middle and used some leaves that I got from Debs (I promise I do have some stuff that I actually bought myself lol) and some pearl sprays from my local florist warehouse. I was down to my last bunch of these but now I have some more |I can use when they run out because she also sent me a few of those :)

A close up of the flower so you can see the organza flower a bit better :)

 I bought these flowers when the Hobbycraft here first opened a few months back because they looked so pretty when they were in bunches but when I got them home and seperated them I wasn't so keen on them because they don't sit very well on their own, but I think they look quite pretty with other flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today.
