Lavinia Flowers & Sparkles

Hi! I've been playing around with some Lavinia stamps I bought years ago, and have made a couple of cards with them. I've added gems to the flowers to add some sparkle.




The colours for this one were inspired by the current Color Throwdown challenge:











I'm also entering it into the following challenges:

Lavinia Stamps: "Add a Flower or Flowers"

Clear It Out: "Theme: Colour-Purple   Stash: Purple things"

Sweet Stampin': "No Designer Paper"



Here's the second card I made, in different colours:




These colours were inspired by the ColourQ challenge:













I'm also entering this card into these challenges:

Sisterhood of crafters: "Birthday"

4 Crafty Chicks: "Clean & Simple"

This was one of the first Lavinia stamp sets I bought, and I've never managed to do much with it - but your cards are inspiring, they show what beautiful artwork can be made with these simple stamps - thank you! Good luck in the lavinia challenge.
