This is my submission for this months Clarity Stamp Blog Challenge 24 which is all things floral.  For the card I have used the freesias stamp which is one of my favourite flowers, I love their beautiful perfume and how delicate they are. 

Good luck in the challenge everyone. 

You've got to be in it to win it.

Lavinia Stamps Challenge 2 - 'Bright and Beautiful'

Well here we are again with the second Lavinia Stamp challenge of 2015 and it seems that old habits die hard as I'm posting at the last minute again. Not to self 'Must try harder'

I have made this card for a good friend and colleagues 60th birthday. She said that she didn't mind what type of card I made for her just so long as it didn't have a big number on the front. 

The centre piece of the card has been made using the Lavinia Celtic Dream Die 'Melody' which was cut out in black and incorporated into a white linen base card and mount with a Lavinia Scene Scape. I also added some matching ribbon and Stickles to the wings.

This has then been matted and layered onto a white 8 x 8 scalloped base card and beautiful backing paper. Then, Finally I added some Sweet Lilac flowers and metal embellishment leaves to finish it off.

I hope you like it, why not visit Lavinia Stamps website and have a go at this fabulous challenge yourself, you never know you may be a winner. For more details follow the link:
