April Showers and Spring Flowers

Being Tuesday this is of course the title of the Stamp-n-Doodle challenge this week.
But actually its rather apt because as I was making the card, and now writing this post, the april showers are blowing their way over my garden – travelling in an almost horizontal fashion as the winds are so strong. And my poor spring flowers, the lovely scented broom and almost opened poppy are taking a real battering !!!
A stark contrast to the brilliant blue skies (and chilly breeze)  we had for the last week of the easter half term. 
Onto the challenge, pop on over to the Stamp-n-Doodle blog to see more inspiration for this week and see how my team member have interpretted April Showers and/or April Flowers.

Ive dithered over these two photos for hours, the top one is a truer colour, but the one below shows the glossy accents off. Easiest thing was to put both on (sorry for duplicating).
I used Ranger glossy accents as a finishing touch over the bird and the flowers to give the impression they had just been in an april shower.

Thanks for coming to take a look.
