April showers bring May flowers

Hello everyone
I have made this card for Sally to say thank you for coming to help me today. I have tried to use a lot of different techniques on it to get the result I wanted. I have paper pieced the ducks, layered it, used a ribbon as a layer and a bow, punched flowers and used brads as their centres, embossed a flower ink stamp and coloured the digital image with copic’s. It took quite a long time but I think it turned out OK, what do you think?
