Lavinia Challenge 2/2014 - Lilac or Blue or Both!

Hello! and welcome to February - Christmas is but a distant memory now - unless you're an organised crafter and have already started next Christmas's cards............and no I'm not an organised crafter!
Did you take a peak at the Lavinia Challenge last month - loads more entries this time now we're including email entrants as well. Fab and so inspirational to see everyone's different take on using these lovely stamps. Well done to the winner of the draw for January - why don't you have a go this month and you might be the lucky recipient of a £40 voucher to spend on the Lavinia website. Go on - you know you want to!
This month's challenge is 'Lilac or Blue or Both', so which is your favourite colour or do you like them both? I couldn't make my mind up so did one of each in two different styles, a blue clean and simple and a lilac fussy and fancy........mmm, I used to be indecisive now I'm not so sure :-).

Blue card,  Lavinia Stamp Fairy House stamped in Adirondack Ink - Denim highlighted with Glamour Dust.

Lilac Tag - Lavinia Stamps Poppy Pods stamped with white embossing powder and Nigella Damescena stamped in Adirondack Slate Ink and Black Versafine then both highlighted with Crystal Clear Lacquer and Glamour Dust.

Take a look at some of the other design team's work on the challenge blog - they're fab, something to suit everyone .......... and I look forward to seeing your entry too x

PS  - hot news for February! ANYONE (even if you don't enter the challenge with a card) who leaves a comment on the Lavinia February challenge post will go into an additional draw at the end of the month for a £20 voucher to spend at Lavinia's website. How fab is that - check it out!
