Lavinia Flower Power.

Where did August go? 
I can't believe that it's time for my second Lavinia challenge as one of the Design team, this month there's two more lovely ladies joining the design team so be sure to give them a visit.

The challenge for this month is 
Now that's easy enough, all you need is to follow the theme and use one of the gorgeous Lavinia images. 
There's a bit of a story behind my image choice,
many moons ago, my very first job was a florist where we often sold Nigela, more commonly known as 
one of the girls I worked with gave it the nick name,
 It's stuck in my head and always makes me giggle so when I saw the set of two stamps I just had to have them!
Here I placed masking tape over washi tape and stamped my image, I've made sure that the tape is well secured on the inside as I know that there's a possibility that the tape could lift easily but I just wanted to try it out, I'm loving the look!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
LIM135, Stamp,
HC21, Stamp,

Thanks for stopping by,
