House Mouse and Friends GDT Card - April Showers

I have another GDT card for the House Mouse and Friends challenge today, this fortnight's theme is "April Showers", and there are some great prizes to be won, hop on over to the challenge blog for the details.
I decided to use this super cute Happy Hoppers decoupage sheet for my card, I thought it was perfect for the theme.  I used Collal 3D glue to build up the layers, then added some Star Dust Stickles to the rain drops and puddle for a bit of shimmer.  The sentiments were on the decoupage sheet too, I just matted them up to match the rest of the card.
 I used some soft eau de nil pearl card for the base layer of my 7x7 card, the plain lilac card and patterned paper are from Papermania's Capsule Collection, in French Lavender, I embossed the cardstock with an Embossalicious folder.
To embellish, I added some lilac ribbon, a bow made with my new Embellish Attic bow makers, a flower made with Xcut dies, and a trio of green flower shaped gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Eclectic Ellapu - The Purplies - April Showers / Spring
Robyn's Fetish - #259 - Use Baker's Twine, I used it in my bow
Allsorts - #306 - Bingo - Gems, Ribbon, Sentiment
