Lavinia Challenge!

Hello lovely bloggers!

It's the first of September today.... that's quite sad in one way because it means summer is nearly over and I've got to go back to work.... but fab in another way as it's time for another LAVINIA STAMPS CHALLENGE!!!

This month we would love you to create something with your Lavinia stamps, and then add a flower to it!
Don't forget the prize is a massive £40 to spend on Lavinia stamps, fab eh?  I've got some gorgeous oriental stamps from Lavinia, and I decided to use them to make my design team sample for this challenge, hope you like it!


I used Chinese house and Bonsai tree stamps in this card.  I used distress inks with ink dusters to make the background and a memory box die - Fabulous Phlox to make the flower.
I'm entering this card in the Make it Monday challenge.
Thanks for visiting, have a nice day! :) xxxxxx

This is a lovely clean oriental inspired design! I like your choice of black card base, it works so well with the silhouette image and it also allows the colors of the scene come through so beautifully. The faux stitching is a nice detail too!
