All Things Bright And Beautiful

It's time for a new challenge theme at Lavinia 
and this time it is

A bit of resist stamping left the miniature flowers dotted on the inked grass and the Zen leaf standing boldly embossed and coloured.

Difficult decision today Julie, love the elegance of the first but the muted colours on the second do rather appeal.

What a lovely treat to start off the week Julie! Not one but two of your stunning Lavinia cards to enjoy! They're both gorgeous, certainly bright and beautiful. It made me smile to see how you used the lovely butterfly die...if anyone can get added use from a die it has to be Julie the Die Cut Queen!
Have a lovely week!

Two gorgeous cards, them both in different ways, as I love seeing lots of white on a card, but I also love seeing lots of inkiness, LOL xx (I also love seeing your cards with perforated edges )
