Add Flowers For Lavinia.

It's time for a new challenge theme at Lavinia and the theme for December is
"Add Flowers"

I used one of the gorgeous new dies for my first card, adding a little sponging and stamping to my background and a few punched flowers to the silhouette.

I thought I'd show you a real side on view so that you can see how I treated the wings. I cut the image three times, trimming around the wings on two and sandwiching a trimming of sheer lilac ribbon between them. I then shaped the wings and glued the rest of the silhouettes together. If I was going to be sending this card through the post, I might add a squeeze of silicone glue up close to the body just to help them stay fluttery. 

The next card is just a masked and inked background  and the poppy stamp inked in two colours.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

DDC11, Girlie/diecut,
AGOAC 133, Kraft and a colour,
Allsorts287, Milestone birthday,
Little Claires, Shaped card.

Thanks for stopping by,

Public heath warning here Julie - I need that fairy die. And there was me promising myself I would buy no more stash until the New Year, oh dear.

Love both, but the first is glorious.

Julie, you've done it again!!:) I absolutely love your beautiful fairy card, it's gorgeous! Such a lovely colours design, the added flowers and the 3D wings (the ribbon is an inspired idea - will be pinching this :) make it really special.
The flower card is beautiful too, the colours and design give it a real vintage feel.
Clever Julie!!

Thoughts of you my friend! I know I already posted but I have to tell you that you inspired me to put together a card for the Lavinia flower challenge. Thank you dear friend for the inspiration and "goose" to get going!
